Inclusion complexes of trans-anethole (AN) with α-cyclodextrin (α-CD), β-cyclodextrin (β-CD), hydroxypropyl-β-cyclodextrin (HP-β-CD), randomly methylated-β-cyclodextrin (RAMEB) and a low methylated-β-cyclodextrin (CRYSMEB) were investigated in aqueous solution by static headspace gas chromatography (SH-GC), phase solubility study, UV-Visible, (1)H NMR and(More)
This paper presents the synthesis, the structural determination and the sensing capabilities toward Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) of a new class of fluorescent indolizine-cyclodextrin sensors. Two different pathways, both involving bipyridinium ylides and 6-amino-b-cyclodextrin, have been used to carry out the synthesis of these sensors. The macrocycle(More)
The capacity of alpha-cyclodextrin (alpha-CD) and four beta-cyclodextrins (beta-CDs) in reducing the volatility of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and particularly carbon tetrachloride (CT), chloroform (TCM) and dichloromethane (DCM) is investigated by using static headspace gas chromatography (HSGC). The experiments allowed the determination of Henry's(More)
In this paper, the controlled release of aroma compounds from cyclodextrins (CDs) and CD polymers was studied by multiple headspace extraction (MHE) experiments. Mentha piperita essential oil was obtained by Soxhlet extraction and identification of the major compounds was performed by GC-MS analysis. Menthol, menthone, pulegone and eucalyptol were(More)
The interactions existing between beta-cyclodextrin, hydroxypropyl-beta-cyclodextrin and six volatile organic compounds (VOC) were studied and used for capture of such pollutants. The reduction of volatility for these VOC appeared to be equivalent for the two kinds of cyclodextrins at equal concentrations, while a higher solubility conferred higher(More)
This paper investigates the effect of native beta-cyclodextrin (beta-CD) and its CD derivatives, such as hydroxypropyl-beta-cyclodextrin (HPBCD) and randomly methylated-beta-cyclodextrin (RAMEB), on the solubilization of a high molecular weight polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon benzo[a]pyrene (BaP) and on its degradation by Fenton's reaction. The results show(More)
A new fluorescent β-cyclodextrin has been synthesized by coupling an anthracene moiety to the cyclic oligosaccharide via click chemistry. The influence of the triazole spacer was compared to the simple amino and amido linkers. While a sensing ability toward adamantan-1-ol was observed with the latter two spacers, the absence of inclusion capacity prevents(More)
The complexation abilities of five cyclodextrins (CDs) with seven phenylpropanoids (PPs) were evaluated by UV-visible spectroscopy, phase solubility studies and molecular modeling. Formation constants (K f), complexation efficiency (CE), PP:CD molar ratio, increase in formulation bulk and complexation energy were assessed. All complexes exhibited a 1:1(More)
Formation of inclusion complexes with cyclodextrins (CDs) is known to enhance guest solubility in aqueous medium. Different techniques allow determining the evolution in solubility of individual guest compounds. However, examination of mixtures solubility encapsulated in CDs is still a challenge. This is mainly related to the difference in the response of(More)
