The xerogel fibers prepared from cholesterylphenylboronic acid or its D- or L-xylose complexes show the chiral discrimination ability in the re- binding of saccharides and partially retain the memory for the original imprinted saccharide. The novel findings indicate that the solgel phase transition in the organic gel is utilizable to the chiral discrimination and even to the molecular imprinting.
