Development of analytical methods sensitive to interfaces is an essential requirement to elucidate specific behaviors of molecules at liquid-solid and liquid-liquid interfaces. A resonant second harmonic generation spectroscopy is newly developed and applied to analysis of molecules at interfaces. Analysis by electrochemical STM and time-resolved total internal reflection fluorescence spectroscopy is also described. Complexation reactoins and molecular recognitions at liquid-liquid interfaces are analyzed by measurements of surface tension and ion transfer polarogram, and unusual selectiveity is achieved using suitable host molecules.
