Metastable polymer/cyclodextrin nano- and microparticles (NPs) were prepared from low molecular weight chitosan (CS), Mw about 10 kDa, and sulfobutylether β-cyclodextrin (SBEβCD). CS is a cationic polysaccharide containing numerous protonated amino groups (pKa about 6.5). SBEβCD is a β-cyclodextrin derivative with six to seven negatively charged sulfobutyl(More)
Cyclodextrins (CDs) are enabling pharmaceutical excipients that can be found in numerous pharmaceutical products worldwide. Because of their favorable toxicologic profiles, CDs are often used in toxicologic and phase I assessments of new drug candidates. However, at relatively high concentrations, CDs can spontaneously self-assemble to form visible(More)
Fast and simple high-pressure liquid chromatographic (HPLC) method with charged aerosol detector (CAD) was developed for quantitation of γ-cyclodextrin (γCD) in aqueous solutions. The chromatographic system consisted of a C18 column (i.e., the stationary phase) and an aqueous mobile phase containing 7% (v/v) methanol. Calibration curve was obtained over the(More)
Permeation techniques can be applied to determine the critical aggregation concentration (cac) of natural cyclodextrins (CDs) in aqueous solutions although the method is both laborious and time consuming. In the present study, the permeation technique was modified and the influence of osmotic pressure, sampling time, CD concentration and molecular(More)
γ-Cyclodextrin (γCD) is a cyclic oligosaccharide formed by bacterial digestion of starch and used as solubilizing agent and stabilizer in a variety of pharmaceutical and food products. γCD is a large (molecular weight 1297Da) hydrophilic molecule that does not readily permeate biological membranes and is rapidly digested by bacteria in the gastrointestinal(More)
