Cyclodextrins form complexes with lanthanide ions in basic aqueous solutions. This complex formation in basic solution dramatically enhances the solubility of lanthanide ions, which are otherwise insoluble due to the formation of hydroxide gels. Solutions of the γ-cyclodextrin-Ce3+ complex effectively hydrolyze 2′-deoxyadenosine-5′-monophosphate to 2′-deoxyadenosine.
