Abstract: In nature, self-organized structures play a decisive role to achieve functionality, such as in phospholipid bilayers or enzymes and antibodies. Chemistry seeks to mimic such natural phenomena by man-made compounds, thus making use of the high selectivity in combination with the improved ruggedness as can be found in engineered systems. In sensing, both preorganized structures, such as macrocyclic host compounds, and recognition sites generated in situ, including molecularly imprinted cavities in polymers, are applied for chemical recognition. Noncovalent interactions between the analyte and the sensor layer lead to self-assembled host-guest complexes leading to the desired sensor effects. The analyte compound changes the conformation of the host, thus leading to induced fit and optimized interactions
