ß-Cyclodextrin (BCD) catalysed hydrolysis of D,Ltryptophan isopropyl ester is found to be pH dependent. The pH rate constant profiles show that the kobs values for the BCD catalysed reactions are higher than those of the control in the pH range 9.8 to 12.9. The reaction follows Michaelis-Menten type kinetics exhibiting substrate saturation. Michaelis-Menten treatment results in determination of KD (0.067 M) and kcat (0.015 M-1 min-1). A kcat/kun values of 0.94 has been determined. Tryptophan, the hydrolysis product formed exhibited enantiometric excess of 7.9 to 18.4% of the ( -) antipode in reactions catalysed by BCD, heptakis-2,6- di-O-methyl-ß-cyclodextrin (DM-BCD), BCD-epichlorohydrin polymer (BCD-polymer) and a 1:1 complex of Cu(II)-ß-cyclodextrin(Cu(II)-BCD).
