Food Funct. 2016 Dec 21. doi: 10.1039/c6fo01677d. [Epub ahead of print]trans-α-Methylstilbene (tMS), a resveratrol analogue, has recently been studied in a search for new bioactivities. However, such studies do not take into account that the poor solubility of tMS in aqueous solutions could affect its bioactivity. For this reason, we propose, for the first time, using cyclodextrins (CDs) as solubilizers to increase tMS solubility, in aqueous solutions. The HPLC-RP results obtained, point to a 1 : 1 stoichiometry for all the natural (α-, β- and γ-CD) and modified (HPβCD and MβCD) CDs tested. Read More
