A series of crosslinked cyclodextrin-containing copolymers based on β-cyclodextrin derivatives and acrylic monomers are synthesized. Applying the UV spectroscopy, it is demonstrated that the copolymers obtained have a positive impact on dyes' photodegradation rate in the presence of titanium dioxide. The copolymers based on β-cyclodextrin maleate exhibit the highest efficiency and influence the methyl orange photodegradation process. The results obtained extend the prospects for a further use of the elaborated products toward the water purification from organic pollutants.
