Our first-class experimental capabilities and advanced experimental platforms allow us to provide our customers with high-quality and high-purity products.
Cyclodextrins are naturally occurring compounds composed of a large ring of glucose subunits. Cyclodextrins have multiple functions of improving the bioavailability of the drug and facilitating delivery, eliminating odors, intensifying the enzymatic conversion of lipophilic substrates, reducing aggregation, and enhancing emulsification and moisture resistance. They are extensively used in fields of food, pharmaceuticals, drug delivery, cosmetics, chemical industries, and agriculture.
Cyclodextrins are prepared by treating starch with cyclodextrin glycosyltransferase (CGTase) and α- amylase. The product of the conversion results is commonly a mixture of three main types of cyclodextrins and the purification of different cyclodextrins takes advantage of the different water solubility of the molecules. It has been reported that dedicated enzymes can produce alpha-, beta- or gamma-cyclodextrin specifically, which is very valuable especially for the food industry.
