The absorption peaks of the inclusion complex turn out to be narrow, indicating that the inclusion compound is not a mechanical mixture of the D, L-Trp and [beta]-CD but a new material, demonstrating that the inclusion reaction has occurred.

-[gamma]cyclodextrin ([gamma]CD), which delivers hydrophobic chemicals, was used to make micro-particles of inclusion compounds that can be ingested by bacteriophagous nematodes, which do not distinguish these micro-particles from their food bacteria.

In this study we have considered only the inclusion compounds in molar proportion 1:1 formed between one molecules of [beta]-CD and ones of PABA species abbreviated PABA1/[beta]-CD (A), PABA1/[beta]-CD (B), PABA2/[beta]-CD (A), PABA2/[beta]-CD (B), PABA3/[beta]-CD (A) and PABA3/[beta]-CD (B) (when molecule 1, 2 and 3 represent respectively neutral, anionic and cationic species of PABA).
Another advantage of the cyclodextrin inclusion compounds lies in their more convenient consistency: whereas linoleic acid in its original form is usually hard to formulate as an oil, complexing produces an odourless powder.
