Cyclooligosaccharide modification applying microwaves. The case of β-cyclodextrin esterification
Published: 26 November 2008 by MDPI in The 12th International Electronic Conference on Synthetic Organic Chemistry session Symposium on Microwave Assisted Synthesis
Abstract: Some preliminary studies on microwave-assisted chemical modification of cyclodextrins are presented. As a chemical linkage agent a citric acid was applied. The esterification reaction of cyclodextrin with polycarboxylic acid was controlled by means of HPLC as well as a spectroscopic method for product complexation ability.
