Hyperbranched polyesters are a group of materials within the family of dendritic polymers (dendrimers and hyperbranched polymers) that have enjoyed increased attention in recent years. The backbone architecture induces new and intriguing properties for the polymers, such as low viscosity and high solubility in various solvents. Hyperbranched polymers also have a large number of endgroups, which allows them to be tailored for very different applications. Hyperbranched polymers have been presented as thermoplastics, thermosets and in blends with conventional linear polymers. A general background to hyperbranched polymers and dendrimers and a more detailed survey of hyperbranched polyesters is presented, together with some speculations on future developments.
