Dendritic materials like dendrimers and dendrons are gaining increasing attention as the nanotechnology era is maturing. Their unique nature, shape and size make them ideal as (multi-functional nanometer-sized building blocks.)
Dendrimers include: Traditional Dendrimers, Asymmetric Dendrimers, DiSulfide Dendrimers and Multifunctional Dendrimers.
DENDRIMERS: More information regarding the dendrimers mentioned above.
Core functionality: Carboxylic Acid Dendrons, Benzyl Dendrons, Amine Dendrons, Azide Dendrons and Acetylene Dendrons.
DENDRONS: More information regarding the dendrons mentioned above.
HYPERBRANCHED POLYMERS: More information regarding the dendrons mentioned above.
MULTIFUNCTIONAL PEGS: The product library of Multifunctional PEGs.
- Water Soluble
- Hydrolytically Degradable
…and have a large number of end-groups accessible for further derivation. With the appropriate chemical design, the dendritic material can be tailored to exhibit:
- Appropriate Solubility in a Range of Solvents
- Suitable Optical Properties
- Catalytic Properties
- Adjustable Pharmacokinetics
…and eventually they may find use as:
- Drug Delivery Scaffolds
- Scaffolds for Tissue Engineering
- Well Defined Markers for Imaging
- Platforms for High-end Optical Devices
- Semiconductor Applications
- Supports for Chemical Reactions
- High-Performance Materials
