Complete charge pooling is prevented in viologen-based dendrimers by self-protection.

Abstract

We have investigated the electrochemical behavior, and chemical and photosensitized reduction of two dendrimers based on a 1,3,5-trisubstituted benzenoid core, which contain 9 and 21 4,4'-bipyridinium (usually called viologen) units, respectively, in their branches and are terminated with tetraarylmethane groups. For comparison purposes, the behavior of… (More)
