The molecular-dynamics method is used to study the adsorption of A-graft-B macromolecules on patterned planar surfaces consisting of regions a and b that specifically interact with chain units. Surfaces with patterns in the form of circles of different radii and a spiral stripe are discussed. Effective recognition occurs during the adsorption of an A-graft-B macromolecule on these patterned surfaces. Recognition means that, for a proper combination of the architecture of a macromolecule and the energy parameters of its interaction with the plane regions, the macromolecule can be located along the boundary of a circle with a given radius or can stay in a given location of the spiral stripe.
