The interface between two immiscible liquids with immobilized metalloporphyrins, enzymes and submitochondrial particles can serve as the simplest model of biological membrane convenient for the investigation of redox reaction accompanied by spatial separation of charges. In this mini review, we have described the vectorial charge transfer and molecular recognition at liquid/liquid interfaces. The structure of liquid interfaces, donor-acceptor interactions in the electrical double layer, hydrogen and specific bounding between molecules play the dominant role in molecular recognition and interfacial catalysis.
