One of the problems in cyclodextrin chemistry is the unequivocal determination of structures of systems under investigation. A simple procedure that can be used for the determination of the position of the substitution in these systems is presented here. The main requirement of this procedure is that the proton attached to the substituted carbon has a magnetic environment that is different from other likely sites of attachment.
