Structure and thermodynamics of ionic dendrimer-dye assemblies.

Abstract

In this study, the association ("electrostatic self-assembly") of cationic generation 4 poly(amidoamine) dendrimer with a set of oppositely charged aromatic and aliphatic organic sulfonate counterions was investigated. Aggregate size and shape depend on the counterion structure. Formation of defined assemblies was possible with stiff, mutually interacting… (More)
