Chiral recognition of ephedrine: Hydrophilic polymers bearing β-cyclodextrin moieties as chiral sensitive host molecules

Abstract

In this work we demonstrate chiral recognition of (+)- and (-)-ephedrine using a cyclodextrin-containing polymer. The supramolecular structures obtained by complexation of ephedrine and cyclodextrin were verified by 2-D ROESY NMR measurements. Dynamic light scattering showed clear differences in the mean coil size.
