Abstract
A computational study based on molecular dynamics (MD) simulations was performed in order to explain the difference in aqueous solubilities of two flavonoid/β-cyclodextrin (β-CD) complexes, hesperetin/β-CD and naringenin/β-CD. The aqueous solubility of each flavonoid/β-CD complex could be characterized by complexwater interaction not by flavonoid-CD interaction. The radial distribution of water around each inclusion complex elucidated the difference of an experimentally observed solubility of each flavonoid/β-CD complex. The analyzed results suggested that a bulky hydrophobic moiety (-OCH3) of B-ring of hesperetin nearby primary rim of β-CD was responsible for lower aqueous solubility of the hesperetin/β-CD complex.
