Chapter Cyclodextrin-Mediated Chiral Separations

Cyclodextrins (CDs) represent the most frequently used chiral selectors in electromigration techniques. CDs are oligosaccharides composed by different glucose units connected to each other through α-(1,4)-glucosidic bonds. They can be obtained by enzymatic treatment of starch. α-CD consists of six, β-CD of seven, and γ-CD of
