Technical Abstract: Materials science technology is an attractive, cost effective, and robust alternative to address the limitations of highly selective natural receptors. These materials are especially well suited to address issues with emerging toxins for which a better understanding is needed to establish levels of exposure and concern. Recent developments in the use of synthetic materials for food safety applications are in the areas of small molecule sensing and chromatographic clean-up procedures in new commodities. Our recent work on the use of synthetic materials to address agricultural problems associated with the emerging mycotoxins citrinin and fusaric acid in corn will be presented.
