Recent Advances on Crosslinked Dendritic Networks
2014 (English)In: Journal of Applied Polymer Science, ISSN 0021-8995, E-ISSN 1097-4628, Vol. 131, no 3, 39876- p.Article, review/survey (Refereed) Published
The branched architectures of dendritic polymers display a large number of end groups, and dendrimers have been extensively evaluated as scaffolds in a large array of research fields, including biomedicine and nanotechnology. From the number of potential applications that require advanced crosslinked films, dendritic macromolecules are attractive as scaffolds that deliver on promising crosslinked three-dimensional (3D) networks. This review briefly covers a description of the family of functional dendritic polymers, ranging from dendrimers and dendrons to hyperbranched polymers and dendritic linear hybrids. The review also contains a detailed report on proposed chemistries for the exploitation of dendritic materials as scaffolds in the field of advanced networks.
