The complexation of the now commercially available chemically modified cyclodextrin hydroxypropyl-β-cyclodextrin with pyrene and naphthalene is compared against the unmodified β-cyclodextrin with the use of fluorescence measurements. A pronounced difference in the complexation properties of the two cyclodextrins is observed for the interaction with both pyrene and naphthalene.
