Here, we report a study on the complexation behavior of carotenoids with cyclodextrins (CDs) using solubility experiments and molecular-modelling methods. Carotenoids are an important group of naturally occurring dyes found in vegetables and fruits. Their antioxidant property has initiated investigations on their possible use as drugs. However, carotenoids(More)
Novel stationary phases were prepared for separation of cyclodextrins and cyclodextrin derivatives by bonding substituted aromatic groups (phenyl and naphthyl) to the silica gel matrix. Both the electron-withdrawing (nitro) and the hydrogen-donor/acceptor (amide or carbamide) substituents of the phenyl group play essential role in the separation of(More)
Cyclodextrins are utilized in many diverse fields of analytical chemistry, due to their propensity to form reversible inclusion complexes and recognize analytes selectively. This Feature shows how these nanocavities can serve analysts in sample preparation, sensitivity and selectivity improvement, enantio-separation, creating single-molecule sensors, and(More)
Inclusion complexes of warfarin enantiomers with permethylated monoamino-β-cyclodextrin (PMMABCD) were characterized using CE and (1)H NMR spectroscopy in aqueous solution. These techniques gave complementary information on the stability and the structure of the diastereomeric host-guest inclusion complexes. The stability constants were determined from CE(More)
OBJECTIVE Niemann-Pick type C (NPC) disease is a fatal, neurodegenerative, lysosomal storage disorder characterized by intracellular accumulation of unesterified cholesterol (UC) and other lipids. While its mechanism of action remains unresolved, administration of 2-hydroxypropyl-β-cyclodextrin (HPβCD) has provided the greatest disease amelioration in(More)
A high-performance size exclusion chromatographic method with analyte enhanced fluorescence detection is described for the analysis of 2-hydroxypropyl-gamma-cyclodextrin (HPGCD) in different biological fluids. The principle of detection was the in situ complexation of 8-anilinonaphthalene-1-sulfonic acid (ANS) by HPGCD. When HPGCD eluted from the column the(More)
Cyclodextrins are cyclic oligosaccharides that are able to form water-soluble inclusion complexes with small molecules. Because of their complexing ability, they are widely applied in food, pharmaceutical and chemical industries. In this paper we describe the development of a free web-service, Cyclodextrin KnowledgeBase: ( http://www.cyclodextrin.net ). The(More)
Since the discovery about 30 years ago (2-hydroxypropyl) beta-cyclodextrin, a highly soluble derivative of beta-cyclodextrin, has become an approved excipient of drug formulations included both in the United States and European Pharmacopoeias. It is recommended to use as solubilizer and stabilizer for oral and parenteral formulations. Recently, its(More)
Three β-cyclodextrin-based chiral stationary phases were developed applying novel bonding chemistry. The separation performances of β-cyclodextrin, (R,S)-2-hydroxypropyl-β-cyclodextrin, and permethyl-β-cyclodextrin-based CSPs were compared in the resolution of structurally divergent analytes, such as coumarins, dansyl amino acids, and propionic acid(More)
