Abstract / Description of output

The solution-state NMR spectra of a per-6-substituted gamma-cyclodextrin show some interesting dynamic properties. At high temperature (353 K), the H-1 NMR spectrum shows dynamic averaging of the different conformations. This averaging is no longer observed on cooling of the cyclodextrin solution to 278 K, resulting in NMR spectra with a large H-1 and C-13 chemical shift dispersion. The complete assignment of the eight unique glucosyl residues was achieved using COSY, HSQC and exchange spectroscopy. A ROESY spectrum, with a short mixing time to reduce the effects of exchange, gives correlations that lead to the determination of the connectivity of all eight glucosyl residues. On the NMR time-scale, the cyclodextrin is highly dynamic; the lower temperature minimum energy conformation has one of the aromatic rings self-complexed and a distorted cyclodextrin torus.
