Pyrene-appended γ-cyclodextrin in solution changes pyrene excimer and monomer fluorescence intensities associated with the conversion from its dimer into host–guest complexes. This fluorescence variation was used to detect a variety of organic compounds, and this system has been shown to be sensitive particularly to some steroid compounds.
