October 2019 is the month when the jubilee of our 200th post coincides with the 33rd anniversary of Cyclodextrin News!
Polysaccharides are polymeric carbohydrate structures. The monomers are linked via glycosidic bonds. Some common examples are starch, glycogen or cellulose.
First let’s talk about one of the biggest achievements in the history of cyclodextrin research: Sugammadex. Sugammadex (SGM) (BridionTM) (1a)
In the next two posts we’ll take a closer look to the oligosaccharides (generally composed from 3 to 10 monosaccharide
In the previous posts we talked a little bit about monosaccharide type active pharmaceutical ingredients. The next are disaccharides: composed of
In the part 1 we talked about monosaccharides used for the treatment of common diseases, like influenza or angina
As we know, cyclodextrins are composed of α-D-glucopyranose units. Among pharmaceuticals there are several other carbohydrate type drugs. In this
Wiley has recently published a book on nanosponges edited by Francesco Trotta and Andrea Mele. The book gives an excellent
The smallest possible cyclodextrins were synthesized by Japanese scientists. They are the first new small cyclodextrins since 1994 when the synthesis of the five membered cyclodextrin was described.
The 4th International Summer School on Cyclodextrins will be held in Milano on 10-12 June 2019. A poster session will
