The dendritic effect illustrated with phosphorus dendrimers

Author affiliations

Abstract

The dendritic (or dendrimer) effect is observed when a functional group behaves differently when it is alone or linked to a dendrimer; its properties can even vary depending on the generation of the dendrimers. The dendritic effect can be observed with any type of dendrimer, and for any type of property, even if it has been most generally tracked in catalysis and biology, and to a lesser extent in the field of materials. This review is mainly oriented towards the various types of dendritic effects observed with polyphosphorhydrazone dendrimers, even if many examples obtained with other types of dendrimers are given.
