The inclusion complexes of both optically active and racemic mandelic acids with α-, β- and γ-cyclodextrins were prepared by using a liophilization technique. The compounds formed were investigated by thermoanalytical methods (TG, DSC and EGD) which were completed with FT-IR spectroscopic measurements, scanning electron microscopic observations, and dissolution rate determinations. The inclusion complex formation between all guests and hosts were proven using the thermoanalytical and FT-IR spectroscopic methods.
