Effect of peracetylation on the conformation of γ-cyclodextrin

Author affiliations

Abstract

The well-known, fourfold symmetry of the γ-CD molecule in its solid inclusion complexes is lost on peracetylation, which yields a highly distorted host molecule in which self-inclusion of acetyl residues divides the macrocyclic cavity into two distinct sub-cavities that accommodate solvent molecules.
