Effect of Water on Deep Eutectic Solvent/?-Cyclodextrin Systems

Progetto Galileo 2018, diretto per la parte italiana dal Professore Andrea Mele del Politecnico di Milano e, per parte francese, dalla Professoressa Sophie Fourmentin, Université Littoral Côte d’Opale Dunkerque.

The rotational dynamics of the mixture composed of the deep eutectic solvent (DES) reline, and the macrocyclic oligosaccharide β-cyclodextrin (βCD) is investigated at the molecular level by NMR relaxation spectroscopy with and without known amounts of water. The progressive addition of water affects the rotational motion of the DES and βCD in different ways. The findings are consistent with βCD interacting primarily with the added water and reline preserving some degree of residual molecular network. Combining in this way the features of the individual components in the mixture may be highly advantageous for future applications. As a proof-of-concept for the encapsulation capacity of βCD within the DES/βCD/H2O mixture, the formation of an inclusion complex with the nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug piroxicam is demonstrated through NMR chemical shifts variation and intermolecular host−guest NOEs in the rotating frame.
