Today’s cyclodextrin makes me feel proud as it is the first paper of your bright young chemist Daniel Bisericaru, sprouting from the intense and fruitful collaboration between Francesco Trotta‘s team and Adrián Matencio Durán at Università degli Studi di Torino and CarboHyde.

In this work and using kneading, we have compared the encapsulation of progesterone, a lipophilic hormone used in hormone replacement therapy, with β-CD and Nanosponges. The project opens the door to new medical formulations of progesterone, supporting the ball-milling kneading as an exciting way of making complexes.
