Abstract
This review examines the literature concerning the thermal properties of na tural and semisynthetic cyclodextrins and their inclusion compounds. Partic ular emphasis is given to recent results of investigations by thermal metho ds of the hydrated forms of cyclodextrins. The limitations and advantages o f the applications of thermal analyses concerning water- and drug-cyclodext rin interactions are also discussed. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science B.V. All rig hts reserved.
