The molecular structure of cyclodextrins creates a bucket-likecavity that can complex with molecules or functional groups on molecules toimprove solubility of poorly soluble compounds. The same mechanism makes theseexcipients capable of masking unpleasant taste/odor and stabilizing drugs thatare prone to degradation. The number of glucose units in the ring determinesthe internal diameter of the cavity and its volume, as the height of the cyclodextrincavity is the same for all the native cyclodextrin grades.
CAVAMAX cyclodextrins are biocompatible and compatible with awide range of ingredients commonly used in pharmaceutical applications. Theregulatory compliance information for all Ashland products varies by productfamily and grade. For specific data about the grade you are interested inplease refer to our Excipient Information Package and the Certificate ofAnalysis (COA).
