Investigators at Annamalai University Describe Findings in Sulfanilamides (Supramolecular aggregates formed by sulfadiazine and sulfisomidine inclusion complexes with alpha-and beta-cyclodextrins)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Life Science Weekly -- New research on Sulfanilamides is the subject of a report. According to news originating from Tamil Nadu, India, by NewsRx correspondents, research stated, "Sulfadiazine (SDA) and sulfisomidine (SFM) inclusion complexes with two cyclodextrins (alpha-CD and beta-CD) are studied in aqueous as well as in solid state. The inclusion complexes are characterized by UV-visible, fluorescence, time correlated single photon counting, FTIR, DSC, PXRD and H-1 NMR techniques."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from Annamalai University, "The self assembled SDA/CD and SFM/CD inclusion complexes form different types of nano and microstructures. The self assembled nanoparticle morphologies are studied using SEM and TEM techniques. SDA/alpha-CD complex is formed hierarchal morphology, SDA/beta-CD and SFM/beta-CD complexes form the nanosheet self assembly."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "However, SFM/alpha-CD complex forms nanoporous sheet self assembly, van der Waals, hydrophobic and hydrogen bonding interaction play a vital role in the self assembling process."
