Four different regioselective double capping reactions were applied either to α- or β-cyclodextrin (CD) scaffolds. The first, which relied on the use of a rigid, bulky dialkylating reagent containing two trityl-like subunits, gave access to an A,B,D,E-tetrafunctionalised β-CD regioisomer in large scale reactions. Two further capping reactions, involving the dianions PhP2− and S2−, led to the synthesis of new C1-symmetrical β-cyclodextrins in which pairs of neighbouring glucose units are linked by very short spacers. The last double capping reaction described allowed the high-yield preparation of unprecedented α- and β-cyclodextrins containing two sulfate handles. Proximal capping turned out to be favoured for each of the above difunctional reagents. The structural characterisation of the capped species was achieved by thorough NMR investigations as well as by single-crystal X-ray diffraction studies.
