The nature of the groups that reside on the periphery of dendrimers and have contact with the surrounding media is the primary factor that controls the surface-related physico-chemical characteristics of these macromolecules. Therefore, transformation/tailoring of the peripheral functionalities of dendrimers is an economical way to change the overall behaviour of a particular dendrimer class or to impart new properties. In addition, the yields of the completely modified macromolecules could… CONTINUE READING
