Characterization and Synthesis of Cyclodextrin Inclusion Complexes and their Applications as Fluorescent Probes for Sensing Biomacromolecules
Cyclodextrins (CDs) are macrocycles composed of several glucose units bound through α-1,4 glycosidic linkages. They can be chemically modified to display functional groups on their primary or secondary rim. CDs display these groups in defined geometries ideally suited to bind biomacromolecules. More...
