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)
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)
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)
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)
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)
This work aimed at preparing new nanoscale assemblies based on an amphiphilic bio-esterified β-cyclodextrin (β-CD), substituted at the secondary face with n-decanoic fatty acid chains (β-CD-C10), and monoolein (MO) as new carriers for parenteral drug delivery. Stable binary (β-CD-C10/MO) and ternary (β-CD-C10/MO/stabilizer) nanoscale assemblies close to(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)
