Recently, I tried to summarize in a blog post, how CDs are made from starch. Although such technologies have been used for decades, there is room for improvement for some derivatives. Sophie Beeren, Andreas Erichsen and Günther Peters at DTU – Technical University of Denmark explore this room using bolaamphiphile templates to produce δ-CD with unprecedented yields in an enzyme-mediated dynamic combinatorial library of cyclodextrins. This technology can open a new and more efficient way to produce some native cyclodextrins. Or even derivatives
