With our new lab and our collaborations with leading academics and industrial partners, we are ideally positioned to further explore novel market opportunities for our innovative cyclodextrins.
Organics (or their moiety) may be including by the cyclodextrin because it has an axial open cavity of hydrophobic character [10, 11].
The arrangement of glucose units in circle give cyclodextrins torus shaped molecular structure (Martin Del Valle, 2004).
In aqueous solutions, many organic and inorganic compounds are able to form inclusion complexes with cyclodextrins by taking up the organic compounds or some lipophilic moiety of the molecule, into the central cavity of cyclodextrin.
Studies show that cyclodextrins competitively bind and inhibit pancreatic [alpha]-amylase, indicating a mechanism whereby [alpha]-cyclodextrin can reduce post-prandial glucose loads.
The researchers added several aroma compounds of varying chemical functionality to slurries of each of the cyclodextrins, at aroma to cyclodextrin molar ratios of 0.
Given the nature of the lipophilic cavities in cyclodextrins, they have a very high affinity for organic contaminants in water.
Wacker transferred responsibility for marketing cyclodextrins, cystine and cysteine in Southeast Asia to DKSH in early October.
Pharmaceutical Processing: What are cyclodextrins and what types of products can they be used in?
Cyclodextrins are bioengineered from plant-based raw materials, such as corn or potatoes, and can be used to mask unpleasant tastes, stabilize food sensitive ingredients, or increase bioavailability of certain active agents.
