A systematic study of pyrene inclusion complexes with α-, β-, and γ-cyclodextrins
The quenching process of pyrene in the presence of cyclodextrins is described. A modified Stern-Volmer (MSV) equation is derived for a more accurate description of this process. This approach proved useful for the interpretation of pyrene-cyclodextrin systems at cyclodextrin concentrations below 1 × 10-3 M. In contrast to the standard Stern-Volmer approximation, the predictions of the MSV equation are in good agreement with the experimental data. The oxygen concentration in solution is observed to play a key role in this quenching process. © 1986 American Chemical Society.
