Yes, on a low volume level, removing basically just human discernible scents. My thought was to commercial and industrial level cleaning of the air hat doesn't need more than daily cleaning of the filtration on more of a life safety clean levelDidn't the article say it was derived from a air cleaning product?
I just found an open source article printed 2013 about abating pollutants from a plant that had metals and other organic contaminants. They used the standard beta cyclodextrin and it did as well as activated carbon in removing metals and organics; that test didn't have lead, but if activated carbon is able to remove lead then I think the original b-cyclodextrin could also, and it appears that the improved form can filter up to 200 times some pollutants as activated charcoal. The other benefit is that activated charcoal needs high heat to be regenerated (and created) and cyclodextrin can be rinsed with methanol or ethanol and shows little to no measurable loss of effectiveness after cleaning
