Dendrimers are a class of synthetic macromolecules that bridge the gap between polymers and small molecules. The dendritic structure provides both the possibility for compartmentalization of reagents as well as offering a multivalent surface, and they are in that respect similar to globular proteins. This perspective article reviews the growing field of organocatalysis with dendrimers and highlights the possibilities that are unattainable for small molecule catalysts.
