From small building blocks to complex molecular architecture.


PMID 16562893

Abstract

[reaction: see text] We describe a synthesis of a dendrimer-like amphiphile containing a flat rigid core and 12 hydrophobic and hydrophilic arms. We employ a modular approach based on stepwise protection chemistry starting from simple building blocks. The key feature of this approach is the absence of a polymerization step, which makes it applicable for linear monofunctionalized precursors of any kind. This strategy also allows for precise control of the number of arms and ensures their alternating arrangement.
