Chemical Structure


Product Introduction:

Cyclodextrins are molecules composed of a cyclic oligosaccharide bound to six hydroxyl groups and one carboxyl group, which can be found in many foods, like cornstarch or agar. It is also known as CYCL.

2-Hydroxypropyl-β-cyclodextrin (HBC) is a widely used modified cyclodextrin with a lipophilic cavity formed by 7 glucose units, and is used in the pharmaceutical industry and food industry, etc. Usually soluble in water , it is insoluble in most organic solvents. It has been used as a water-soluble polymer for drug delivery, polysaccharide encapsulation, and molecular recognition in molecular recognition technology.

2-Hydroxypropyl-beta-cyclodextrin has been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use in food products since 1966.

It has also recently been proposed as an environmentally friendly and sustainable solvent for the production of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) by the catalytic reduction of terephthalic acid (TPA) with ethylene glycol dimethylether. 2-Hydroxypropyl-β-cyclodextrin forms a cavity that is wider than its linear size.

Nature and Specifications:



Product Usage:

2-hydroxypropyl-β-cyclodextrin is a compound that has been utilized in the manufacture of different products. 2-Hydroxypropyl-BETA-cyclodextrin is one of the most extensive and also widely utilized cyclodextrin derivatives. It is mainly utilized in medicine, food and cosmetics industries.

Application in the pharmaceutical industry

In the pharmaceutical industry, hydroxypropyl-BETA-cyclodextrin is an ideal injection solubilizer and pharmaceutical excipient, which can improve the water solubility of poorly soluble drugs, increase drug stability, improve drug bioavailability, and make pharmaceutical In addition, 2-hydroxypropyl-β-cyclodextrin has a high molecular weight, so it can release the drug slowly in the stomach, reducing the toxic and side effects of the drug.

2-hydroxypropyl-β-cyclodextrin is an excellent solubilizer and pharmaceutical excipient for injection as a result of its fairly low relative surface area task and hemolytic activity and also no muscle mass inflammation.

Application in the food industry

2-hydroxypropyl-β-cyclodextrin can improve the stability as well as long-lasting effect of nutrient particles in the field of food and also flavor, can mask or remedy the bad scent and also preference of food nutrient molecules, and also can enhance the production process and product quality. It has excellent solubility in water, and can be miscible with water in any type of percentage with a substitution level of 4 and above, and also can likewise be liquified in 50% ethanol and methanol.

It is also used as a thickener in ice cream, condiments, sauces, soups, gravies and beverages such as shakes and smoothies.

As a food additive: 2-hydroxypropyl-β-cyclodextrin is used as an emulsifier and stabilizer for making foods such as ice cream and sauces. It also helps in producing whipped cream at home.

As an Antioxidant: This compound acts as a preservative to keep food from spoiling or going bad. It also has anti-inflammatory properties that help relieve pain.

Application in the cosmetic sector

2-hydroxypropyl-β-cyclodextrin is used as a stabilizer, emulsifier, antiperspirant, and so on in aesthetic raw materials, which can decrease the inflammation of natural molecules in cosmetics to skin as well as mucous membrane layer cells, enhance the stability of energetic ingredients, and prevent the volatilization of nutrients, oxidation.

2-hydroxypropyl-β-cyclodextrin is often used as an emulsifier because it allows fats to mix with water or oil without forming droplets of either substance.

2-hydroxypropyl-beta-cyclodextrin can also be found in personal care products such as conditioners, shampoos, skin creams, soaps, toothpaste, and oral care products such as toothpaste and mouthwash.
