The molecular recognition features of tolbutamide with four synthetic hosts have been studied by means of NMR titrations, NOESY experiments and Monte Carlo (MC) conformational search. The interaction strength and the most probable structure reveal new insights on the recognition phenomena of this urea derivative in comparison with close related compounds.
