Improved access to 2-O-monobenzyl ethers of beta-cyclodextrin as precursors of catalysts for organophosphoryl esters hydrolysis.


A comparative study of reaction conditions was performed for the synthesis of a 2-O-monobenzyl ether of cyclomaltoheptaose (beta-CD). Optimal conditions involved sodium ethoxide in Me(2)SO and benzyl bromide. The methodology was extended to the preparation of various 2(I)-O-iodobenzyl and 2(I)-O-carboxymethylbenzyl derivatives of beta-CD including a 3-carboxymethyl-4-iodobenzyl derivative of interest as precursor of an enzyme mimic to degrade the organophosphoryl ester diethyl 4-nitrophenyl phosphate (paraoxon).
