Abstract

In this work, rutin (RUT)–β-cyclodextrin (β-CD) inclusion complexes are prepared by Supercritical AntiSolvent (SAS) precipitation. Well-defined composite microparticles are obtained at guest:host ratios equal to 1:2 and 1:1 mol:mol. The dimensions of composite particles range between 1.45 ± 0.88 µm and 7.94 ± 2.12 µm. The formation of RUT–β-CD inclusion complexes has been proved by different analyses, including Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, Differential Scanning Calorimetry, X-ray diffraction, and UV-vis spectroscopy. The dissolution tests reveal a significant improvement in the release rate of RUT from inclusion complexes. Indeed, compared to the unprocessed RUT, the dissolution rate is about 3.9 and 2.4 times faster in the case of the complexes RUT–β-CD 1:2 and 1:1 mol:mol, respectively. From a pharmaceutical/nutraceutical point of view, CD-based inclusion complexes allow the reduction of the polymer amount in the SAS composite formulations.
