The molecular conformation of cyclodextrins (β-CD, γ-CD) bearing benzoyl moiety was studied by circular dichroism and 1H NMR. The circular dichroism intensity of mono[6 (benzoyl-ethylendiamino)]-β-CD (1) was reduced by adding of guests. In contrast, the circular dichroism intensity of mono(6-o-benzoyl)-γ-CD (2) was increased by adding of guests. The benzoyl moiety of 1 was extruded outside from the cavity of β-CD by guests, while the benzoyl moiety of 2 was included together with guests in the cavity of γ-CD.

Key words: Benzoated cyclodextrins, Circular dichroism, Host conformation, Supramolecular chemistry
