Table of Contents

Chapter headings. Preface (G.R. Newkome). Dendrimers and hyperbranched aliphatic polyesters based on 2,-2Bis (hydroxymethyl) propionic acid (Bis-MPA) (H. Ihre et al.). Consequences of the fractal character of dendritic high-spin macromolecules on their physiochemical properties (N. Ventosa et al.). Dendrimers based on metal complexes (S. Serroni et al.). Redox-active dendrimers, related building blocks, and oligomers (M.R. Bryce, W. Devonport). Organometallic dendritic macromolecules: organosilicon and organometallic entities as cores or building blocks (I. Cuadrado et al.). Index.


The series Advances in Dendritic Macromolecules aims to cover the synthesis and supramolecular chemistry of dendritic or cascade super-molecules as well as their less perfect hyperbranched cousins.

In Volume 3, Chapter 1 describes the synthesis and characterization of dendrimers and hyperbranched polyesters, both based on 2,2-bis(hydroxymethyl)propionic acid, as the AB2-monomer. Chapter 2, discusses the advantages and drawbacks of dendritic molecular architectures necessary to create polymeric organic magnetic materials. In Chapter 3, Balzani and colleagues delineate their contributions to the field of polynuclear transition metal complexes in the design and construction of dendritic nanostructures; these luminesence and redox-active complexes suggest their role as photochemical molecular devices operating by photoinduced energy and electron transfer processes. Chapter 4, reviews the overall progress on redox-active dendrimers, especially as redox catalysts, organic conductors, modified electrodes, and models for electron transfer proteins. Chapter 5, summarizes the pioneering research in organometallic dendritic macromolecules and then delineates the redox properties of a series of silicon-based ferrocenyl-containing dendrimers.


For polymer students and students in academia and industry.
