Abstract Low molecular mass fractions of water soluble α-, β-, and γ-cyclodextrin epichlorohydrin polymer products (cdx-Ep) were characterized by13C nuclear magnetic resonance. The derivatives proved not to be polymers, but substituted cdx having one or two glyceryl groups per one glucose at the C-2, C-3 and C-6 positions. Spectra of analogous hydroxy-propyl β-cdx indicate that the degree of substitution is rather higher at the C-6 position. Methyl orange (MO) was included into nine kinds of cdx having different inner diameters and hydrophobic torus heights; α-, β-, and γ-cdx monomers, 2, 6-dimethyl and 2, 3, 6-trimethyl β-cdx, water soluble α-, β-, and γ-cdx-Ep and ethyleneglycol-bis(epoxy-propyl) ether products. The inclusion shifts were compared with each other and with the dioxane-induced solvent shift of MO. TheN, N-dimethyl-aniline side of MO shifted to a higher field site with the increase of the inner diameter in cdx. By substituting cdx with ether groups of different length, the mechanism of inclusion formation remains substantially the same, but by lengthening the hydrophobic cavity, the hydrophobic interaction becomes stronger, as a better resemblance of inclusion shifts and solvent shifts can be observed.
