ABSTRACT In the present era, hyperbranched polymers have been received much progress in the structural understanding and their unique chemical and physical properties as well as their potential applications in coatings. In a new perspective, low Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) coatings and films with previously nonachievable properties can now be produced due to the innovation of a new class of macromolecular architecture, called hyperbranched polymers revolution. This review describes notable… Expand
