    In this review the design of neutral receptors for anions is described. In these receptors, selective anion recognition takes place either exclusively via hydrogen bonding or by combination of a Lewis acidic UO2-center and hydrogen bonds. An approach to neutral bifunctional receptors containing both anion and cation complexing sites is described. The results on selective H2PO4- anion transport and simultaneous transport of hydrophilic cations and anions through a supported liquid membrane are presented.
