Imprinting

The idea of imprinting information into a polymer chain during polymerizatin seems very futuristic and yet biolological systems do this all the time.  I suppose coordination polymerization with special catalysts is really imprinting, especially stereospecific polymerization. At any rate, this patent seems a step in that direction.

Molecularly imprinted polymers produced by template polymerization
Piletsky, Piletska, Elska, Anndersson, Nicholls and Turner from Cranfield University in Great Britain have done this for polypeptides.  Their approach ought to be applicaable for any condsation polymerization.
