Call CTD to ask for specific literature references to any of these applications. Purchase a Trappsol Starter Kit and begin your own exploration.

Since many countries (not the U.S.) already use Cyclodextrin's in food products, there is much information in the patent literature about these applications. As part of our consulting and business development services we can make known to you what patents are available for licensing and in some cases we can actually conduct licensing negotiations with the patent owners on your behalf. Ask us about licensing opportunities currently available to help your business.

By far the most prolific patentors of Cyclodextrin technology are the Japanese. Japanese industries have been developing commercial applications of natural Cyclodextrin's for more than 20 years and they continue to find more exciting ways to apply these interesting molecules. In an effort to help U.S. industry become more aware of these new applications (especially in the food industry), our consulting service is planning a newsletter that will provide up-to-date listings and explanations of uses of Cyclodextrin's patented around the world. Contact us to find out more about this newsletter.

CTD personnel are able to act as consultants to organizations wishing to asses, commercialize, acquire, etc. Cyclodextrin-related technology. Through its worldwide academic and industrial contacts, CTD can provide reliable and timely technical, patent, regulatory, and marketing advice. These services are available under customary financial arrangements covering per-diem fees and expenses. Contact CTD for it's fee schedule.
