Cyclodextrins have an inclusion capacity that enables many hydrophobic compositions to become soluble in an aqueous solution.
There are many uses for this molecular tool, such as controlling the release of scents and flavors, improving the bioavailability of a therapeutic compound, capturing pesticides, encapsulating toxic organic compounds present in water, etc.
