Abstract: Molecular recognition in water is challenging but water-soluble molecularly imprinted nanoparticle (MINP) receptors were produced readily by double cross-linking of surfactant micelles in the presence of suitable template molecules. When the micellar surface was decorated with different polyhydroxylated ligands, significant interactions could be introduced between the surface ligands and the template. Flexible surface ligands worked better than rigid ones to interact with the polar moiety of the template, especially for those template molecules whose water-exposed surface is not properly solvated by water. The importance of these hydrophilic interactions was examined in the context of different substrates, density of the surface ligands, and surface-cross-linking density of the MINP. Together with the hydrophobic interactions in the core, the surface hydrophilic interactions can be used to enhance the binding of guest molecules in water
