Cyclodextrins book cover


The total number of papers, conferences, abstracts and patents dedicated to cyclodextrins by the end of 1995 will be about 12,000 in number. This vast number of publications deals with the chemistry (structure, chemical reactivity), biology (enzymology, metabolism, toxicity, direct therapeutic effects), inclusion complex forming capacity and its consequences, and industrial utilization of cyclodextrins (in drugs, foods, cosmetics, chromatography, catalysis biotechnology, diagnostics etc) in unlimited numbers of products and technologies.This volume pulls all this information together, covering the chemistry, biology and industrial application of cyclodextrins as molecular encapsulating agents in research methods, analytical procedures, industrial technologies and products.
