New β- and γ-cyclodextrin derivatives, selectively substituted with n-pentyl and methyl groups, e.g. heptakis(2,6-di-O-methyl-3-O-pentyl)-β-cyclodextrin, octakis(2-O-methyl-3,6-di-O-pentyl)-γ-cyclodextrin, and octakis(2,6-di-O-methyl-3-O-pentyl)-γ-cyclodextrin, have been prepared from specifically protected intermediates. The new cyclodextrin derivatives exhibit unique enantioselectivity towards important chiral constituents of essential oils. The enantiomers of lavandulol, α-bisabolol, nerolidol, and other terpenoid alcohols could be resolved and their presence in different essential oils could be proved. Methyl jasmonate and epi-methyl jasmonate could, in addition, be detected in jasmine concrete by two-dimensional gas chromatography. The enantiomers of the macrocyclic ketone muscone have been separated for the first time.
