Dendrimers. With contributions by numerous experts (Topics in Current Chemistry Vol. 197)
From Book News, Inc. A reference on dendrimers in which pioneers in the new field describe basic principles and current developments. From such perspectives as organic chemistry, materials science, and pharmaceutical chemistry they provide a historical overview, background on theory, and discussions of the synthesis and applications of the highly symmetrical giant molecules. Among the specific topics are masses, sizes, and shapes of macromolecules from multifunctional monomers; nomenclature; divergent, convergent, and one-step procedures of synthetic methodologies; chiral dendritic macromolecules; dendrimers containing metal sites; dendritic networks; and utilitarian aspects including the ion exchange process, electronic properties, inks and toners, sucrose mimetics, gene therapy, and patents for preparing building blocks and dendrimers themselves.

Kurzbeschreibung Dendrimers are a class of highly branched molecules that combine the properties of polymers and 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 area,...
