The host–guest interaction of p-nitro benzaldehyde as guest β-Cyclodextrins have been investigated which have significant applications in the field of medicine such as controlled drug delivery. The 1H NMR study confirms the formation of inclusion complex while surface tension and conductivity studies support the formation inclusion complex with 1:1 stoichiometry. The stoichiometry of the inclusion complex was also supported with Job’s plot method by UV-Visible spectroscopy.
FT-IR spectra and SEM study also support the inclusion process. Association constants of the inclusion complexes have been calculated using the Benesi–Hildebrand method, while the thermodynamic parameters have been estimated with the help of van’t Hoff equation.
