The MIPS, also known as plastic antibodies, are synthetic antibodies. Like their organic counterparts, they are able to target a particular molecule. Unlike their organic counterparts, they are relatively cheap. So far, MIPs have been explored as a helpful tool for biosensing and medical treatments. In a paper published in Angewandte Chemie International Edition, and patent application, the researchers describe a method for incorporating them into cosmetics, specifically deodorants.
