These studies led to the hypothesis that many of the 21 hydroxyl groups on beta-cyclodextrin molecules could be derivatrzed to form a closely related family of analogous chemical compounds containing both polymerizable groups and hydrophilic ionizable ligand (substrate-binding) groups, each attached via hydrolyticaliy-stablc ether-linkages.
The objective was to attach, by means of hydrolytically stable ether linkages, several polymerizable groups and hydrophilic carboxylate-terminated ligand groups per molecule of beta-cyclodextrin.
Beta-cyclodextrin (BCD) is a cyclic oligosaccharide that consists of seven glucopyranose units, linked by alpha 1-4 glycoside linkages.

Prices for gamma-cyclodextrin have been about 100-fold greater than those of beta-cyclodextrin over the past 10 years, but they are drifting downward with prospects of market competition, according to an industry spokesperson.
Currently, worldwide sales of beta-cyclodextrin are estimated at 2 million pounds, mostly for encapsulating food additives in Japan.
