The enthalpies, entropies and Gibbs energies of inclusion of dl-1,3-, 1,4- and meso-2,3-butanediols into α- and β-cyclodextrin cavities from ideal gas phase have been determined on the basis of newly obtained
experimental data of the butanediols. The butanediol molecules are stabilised strongly in the cavities due to interactions
with inner walls of the cavities. Entropies of the gaseous isomers are greatly decreased in the cavities. The largest decrease
is obtained for the case of 2,3-BD. Discussions concerning the1,4-butanediol given in the preceding paper have been changed
due to the adoption of new data on the butanediols.
