Solutions composed of α -cyclodextrin (α-CD), water, and various methylpyridines, in particular, 4-methylpyridine (4MP), undergo reversible liquid-solid transitions upon heating, the crystalline solid phases undergoing further phase transformations at higher temperatures. This unusual behavior has been characterized by an ensemble of measurements, including solubility, differential scanning calorimetry, quasielastic neutron scattering, as well as x-ray powder diffraction. For the α -CD/4MP system five crystalline phases have been identified. The unit cell parameters and corresponding changes with temperature indicate a scenario for the crystallization process. A simple model is proposed that mimics the observed disorder-order transition.
