What are they like? This chapter would like to be a pragmatic user's guide in the non-trivial and yet challenging task of designing effective synthetic receptors for molecular recognition of carbohydrates. In the next pages the reader will go through a critical overview of the recent literature focused on systematic studies concerned with the understanding of the structural and functional features that can lead to effective recognition of carbohydrates.
