Molecular recognition of non-biological systems in aqueous media presents problems arising from the inherent difficulty of formation of host-guest systems. Examples are given for recognition occurring at the air-water interface—the most common type, where receptors from a monolayer at the interface (see Figure)—or in micelles or vesicles. The particular role of directional hydrogen-bonding interactions is emphasized.
