Publication of the Month: April 2017

The Publication of the Month for April 2017 is out!

For this month, we have a publication from the field of biomedical applications, using polyester dendritic materials as carriers.

“Polyester Dendrimers: Smart Carriers for Drug Delivery”. Jean–d’Amour K. Twibanire, T. Bruce Grindley. Polymers 2014, 6(1), 179-213.

Dr. Janne Surinthra, Polymer Factory’s Product Manager for dendrimers and dendrons says “This informative review highlights the use of polyester-based dendritic materials in drug delivery applications. Several dendritic structures such as dendrimers, dendrons and linear dendritic hybrids were showcased. At Polymer Factory, we provide polyester dendritic materials based on bis-MPA monomer which displays non-toxic and biocompatible properties, making it suitable for applications within the field of medical biology.

To find out more about Polymer Factory’s products, visit our products page. Besides dendrimers and dendrons, we also provide hyperbranched materials, linear-dendritic hybrids and Spherical®, calibrants for mass spectroscopy.


What are Dendrimers?


Traditional Dendrimers are dendrons coupled together to a core moiety and have only one type of functionality at the periphery. Typically bis-MPA dendrimers are tridendrons that comprise a multitude of functional groups (f is 12, 24, 48 or 96).
