Synthetic methodologies and spatial organization of metal chelate dendrimers and star and hyperbranched polymers

Author affiliations

Abstract

The synthetic methodologies, physico-chemical peculiarities, properties, and structure of metal chelate dendrimers and star and hyperbranched polymers are considered. These compounds are subdivided into molecular, intracomplex, and macrocyclic types which in turn are classified depending on the nature of the donor atoms (N,N-, N,O-, N,S-, O,O-, O,S-, S,S-, P,P-chelates, etc.). Special attention is paid to the features of the preparation of metal chelate star polymers by “arm-first”, “core-first” and click-to-chelate approaches. The main data on the synthesis, spatial structure and properties of the metal chelate hyperbranched polymers are summarized. The basic concepts and synthetic strategies leading to the different types of supramolecular metal chelate dendrimers are analyzed. The problems and future prospects of metal chelate dendrimers and star and hyperbranched polymers are outlined. The bibliography includes papers published after 2010.
