Effects of interfaces on hydrogen-bonded liquids play major roles in nature and technology. Despite their importance, a fundamental understanding of these effects is still lacking. In large parts, this shortcoming is due to the high complexity of these systems, leading to an interference of various interactions and effects. Therefore, it is advisable to take gradual approaches, which start from well designed and defined model systems and systematically increase the level of intricacy towards more complex mimetics. Moreover, it is necessary to combine insights from a multitude of methods, in particular, to link novel preparation strategies and comprehensive experimental characterization with inventive computational and theoretical modeling. Such concerted approach was taken by a group of preparative, experimentally, and theoretically working scientists in the framework of Research Unit FOR 1583 funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (German Research Foundation). This special issue summarizes the outcome of this collaborative research. In this introductory article, we give an overview of the covered topics and the main results of the whole consortium. The following contributions are review articles or original works of individual research projects.

Keywords: aqueous solutions; confinement; hydrogen-bonded liquids; macromolecular crowding; mesoporous silica; proteins; reverse micelles; water
