About this book


Dendrimers are a class of highly branched molecules that combine the properties of polymers as well as small discrete molecules. One classified among the exotic molecules of chemistry, dendrimers have attracted considerable attention in recent years, as their unique host/guest properties and their capability of being functionalized in the periphery as well in the core have led to new materials with a great potential for applications. This volume presents the state of art in this blossoming research area, written by pioneers in the fields. Covering the synthetic, supramolecular, stereochemical, host/guest and polymer chemistry of dendritic and hyperbranched molecules, this volume explains both theoretical and practical aspects, including chirality reactivity, mechanism, material properties and biological relevance. It is the most comprehensive and authoritative review of the area available.
