The comprehensive resource for understanding the structure, properties, and applications of cyclodextrins

Cyclodextrins: Properties and Industrial Applications is a comprehensive resource that includes information on cyclodextrins (CDs) structure, their properties, formation of inclusion complex with various compounds as well as their applications. The authors Sahar Amiri and Sanam Amiri, noted experts in the field of cyclodextrins, cover both the basic and applied science in chemistry, biology, and physics of CDs and offers scientists and engineers an understand of cyclodextrins.

Cyclodextrins are a family of cyclic oligosaccharides consisting of (alpha-1,4)-linked alpha-D-glucopyranose units. The formation of inclusion complex between CDs as host and guest molecules is based on non-covalent interaction such as hydrogen bonding or van der waals interactions and lead to the formation of supramolecular structures. These supramolecular structures can be used as macroinitiator for initiating various type of reactions. CDs are widely used in many industrial products such as pharmacy, food and flavours, chemistry, chromatography, catalysis, biotechnology, agriculture, cosmetics, hygiene, medicine, textiles, drug delivery, packing, separation processes, environment protection, fermentation, and catalysis. This important resource:
* Offers a basic understanding of cyclodextrins for researchers and engineers
* Includes information of the basic structure of cyclodextrins and their properties
* Reviews how cyclodextrins can be applied in a variety of fields including medicine, chemistry, textiles, packing, and many others
* Shows how encapsulate corrosion inhibitors became active in corrosive electrolytes to ensure delivery of the inhibitors to corrosion sites and long-term corrosion protection

Cyclodextrins offers research scientists and engineers a wealth of information about CDs with particular focus on how cyclodextrins are applied in various ways including in drug delivery, the food industry, and many other areas.

SAHAR AMIRI currently works at the Department of Polymer Engineering, Science and Research Branch, Islamic Azad University, Tehran, Iran. Her research interests include synthesis and characterization of polymers, including silicone-based polymers and copolymers, cobalt-mediated radical polymerization (CMRP), inclusion complex between Cyclodextrins and various polymers and nano-capsule synthesis based on cyclodextrins. She has authored 2 books and more than 35 papers to date.

SANAM AMIRI works at Department of Textile Engineering, Amirkabir University of Technology, Tehran, Iran. Her current research interests include synthesis of polymers including silicone-based polymers and copolymers, cobalt-mediated radical polymerization (CMRP) and using Cyclodextrins in textile engineering and thermos-reversible lock copolymers based on Cyclodextrins.
