Cyclodextrins: Properties and Applications (3527339809) cover image


Authored by two experts working in this important field of research, the timely book covers the latest advances in the synthesis of cyclodextrins, their properties and important industrial applications. To this end, the authors describe covalent and non-covalent assemblies, cyclodextrin inclusion complexes, cyclodextrin polymers, and modified cyclodextrins, resulting in an up-to-date overview of cyclodextrin chemistry. An invaluable reference for organic and polymer chemists in academia as well as those researchers in industry working in polymer, supramolecular and pharmaceutical chemistry, as well as food, textile and cosmetic science.
