Dynamic internal cavities of dendrimers as constrained media. A study of photochemical isomerizations of stilbene and azobenzene using poly(alkyl aryl ether) dendrimers.


Dendritic microenvironments defined by dynamic internal cavities of a dendrimer were probed through geometric isomerization of stilbene and azobenzene. A third-generation poly(alkyl aryl ether) dendrimer with hydrophilic exterior and hydrophobic interior was used as a reaction cavity in aqueous medium. The dynamic inner cavity sizes were varied by utilizing… (More)
