Imaging the distribution of DMPBD and terpinen-4-ol inclusion complexes with 2-hydroxypropyl-beta-cyclodextrin by using TOF-SIMS
Journal article, 2021

The distribution of terpinen-4-ol (TP4ol) and DMPBD inclusion complexes with 2-hydroxypropyl-beta-cyclodextrin (HPbCD) in human skin has been investigated using the TOF-SIMS technique. TP4ol and DMPBD have been found to be major components of Zingiber cassumunar Roxb. (Plai) oil extracted by steam distillation. The results mainly show accumulation of TP4ol and DMPBD inclusion complexes with HPbCD in the epidermis and dermis whereas these two compounds without cyclodextrin cannot penetrate into the epidermis. This approach can be expanded for investigation of anti-inflammatory action and relief of muscle pain.
