Stereoregular polystyrene (PS) polymer was prepared by inclusion polymerization using beta -cyclodextrin (beta -CD). Physico-chemical, optical and X-ray diffraction studies for the prepared polymers were carried out. The physico-chemical properties such as tensile, burst and impact strength of the PS prepared in presence of beta -CD resulted in higher values, whereas properties like water vapor transmission rate (WVTR) and percentage transmittance showed lower values than the control. These results are justified by the observed changes in the microcrystalline parameters obtained from X-ray studies.
