Further current projects are exploring the capabilities of cyclodextrin
in water or air treatment applications, for instance to filter unwanted odors or pollutants.

Host-Guest Inclusion Complexes, ACS Appl.
Furthermore, the three hydroxyl groups on C6, C2 and C3 have different reactivities and this influences the chemistry that can be performed with cyclodextrin
(Lindhorst, 2007) molecules.
Rational design of cyclodextrin
glycosyltransferase from Bacillus circulans strain 251 to increase alpha-cyclodextrin
are known as effective complexing agents, which have an ability to form inclusion complexes with various organic guest molecules that fit the size of the cyclodextrin
Lower loads resulted in better retention, irrespective of the type of cyclodextrin
Wibaux and Paesen developed odor- and water-absorbing foams based on cyclodextrin
coupled to polyurethane foams.
are interesting because they have a lipophilic central cavity and a hydrophilic exterior surface.
Franz Schardinger identified cyclodextrins
in 1903 as products produced by the degradation of starch through the action of amylase enzyme cyclodextrin
glycosyl transferase (CGTase) produced by the microorganism Bacillus macerans which may break a segment of the starch helix and join the end portions of the fragment in one cyclic molecule.
A review has described studies of the binding of cyclodextrin
to protein, and almost all studies have identified amino acid residues as the main structural element interacting with cyclodextrin
The composition is free of any cyclodextrin
compounds and film-forming polymers.
CD can form inclusion complexes with lipophylic drugs that have physical, chemical, and biological properties dramatically different from those of either the parent drug/ligand or cyclodextrin
