Effect of the Type of Glycosidic Linkage on the Selective Interactions of Maltose and Cellobiose with Some Crown Ethers in Dilute Aqueous Solutions

Original Paper


Titration calorimetric and densimetric measurements have been applied to study the selective interactions of two disaccharides composed of two glucose units, maltose and cellobiose, with 15-crown-5 and 18-crown-6 in dilute aqueous solutions. Maltose and cellobiose form thermodynamically stable complexes with different stoichiometries with 18-crown-6 but not with 15-crown-5. The obtained results are explained by the different states of the disaccharides in aqueous solution due to effect of the type of linkage between glucose units
