The interaction of optically labeled saccharides with resorcinarenes as synthetic saccharide receptors has been investigated by determination of the partition of the saccharides over an aqueous and 1-octanol phase in the absence and presence of the synthetic receptor. It is shown that the complexation of merocyanine labeled glucose, galactose and ribose with the resorcinarenes can be optically detected and that the chosen receptors have a modest selectivity towards the labeled glucose.
