Pyriproxyfen is a pyridine based pesticide which is effective against mosquito larvae. Here we report the inclusion complexes (ICs) between guest pyriproxyfen and host β and γ cyclodextrins, but not with α cyclodextrin, based on WAXD, DSC, FTIR, and TGA characterization results. We show that one pyriproxyfen molecule is covered with between one and two β or γ cyclodextrin molecules when it forms columnar ICs upon precipitation from aqueous solution.
