In this paper, we suggest the advanced method of methane hydrate formation by cyclodextrin solutions. The structures of the methane hydrate were experimentally investigated by Raman spectroscopy. The induction time of the methane hydrate formation becomes by shorter 10–30 times and formation rate become by faster 2–4 times originated in the increased methane concentration of hydrate formation water by adding cyclodextrins. The results by the Raman spectroscopy indicate that the structure I methane hydrate is produced and methane molecules exist in both Large and Small cages.
