Amphiphilic alpha-cyclodextrins have been synthesized bearing hexylthio, dodecylthio, and hexadecylthio chains at the 6-positions and glycosylthiocarbamoyl-oligo(ethylene glycol) units at the 2-positions. The glycosyl residues (alpha-D-mannosyl and beta-L-fucosyl) are intended for cell-targeting. Self-assembly of these new amphiphilic glycosylated cyclodextrins in water to form vesicles was investigated by dynamic light scattering and transmission electron microscopy. Selective binding of the hexylthio assemblies to a protein receptor (Lens culinaris lectin) was confirmed by fluorescence spectroscopy.
