CycloPure's polymer crosslinks ß-cyclodextrin (cups) with other monomers (balls).

CycloPure, a start-up developing water filtration products, has raised $5 million to accelerate commercialization of its cyclodextrin polymer technology. The company, founded by Northwestern University chemistry professor Will Dichtel, says its porous, cross-linked polymer can adsorb micropollutants such as perfluorooctane sulfonate in water. The polymer combines β-cyclodextrin, derived from corn starch, and other monomers.
