More About This Textbook


"Congratulations to the editors (and the prominent authors) on this new volume addressing dendrimers. It contains valuable summaries on state-of-the-art design, synthesis, analysis, and applications of this structural type that occurs within small, medium nano-sized, and large, multi-branched, functional molecules. It also demonstrates that there are numerous experimental options and much work left to be done in the future."

—Dr. Fritz Vögtle, University of Bonn, Germany

A unifying and comprehensive look at the study and application of dendrimers today, in the past, and in the future

Research on dendrimers has exploded in recent years, moving first from the establishment of synthetic methodologies, then towards the sophisticated and wide-ranging applications of these remarkable molecules. Dendrimers play an important role in many different fields: from basic synthetic approaches to artificial photosynthesis, to medicine, and far beyond. The great potential of dendrimers is well recognized, but until now there has not been one definitive volume that covers the vast amount of information and research that has been found in thousands of papers and patents. Designing Dendrimers fills this void, covering both the fundamental and applicative aspects of dendrimer research, with chapters devoted to basic principles, synthetic methods and strategies, and advanced characterization techniques. It also addresses the full potential of dendrimers in various fields, like multi-redox pool systems, diagnostics, biomedical and sensing functions, and the design of functional nanostructures, with a particular emphasis on possible future developments.
