Close-packed polybutylcarbosilane dendrimers of higher generations

Author affiliations

Abstract

Variation of generation number strongly affects the type of ordering found for polybutylcarbosilane dendrimers: G5 dendrimers are liquid-like, G6 are cubic liquid crystals and G7/G8 are disordered close-packed. It was revealed that G6 dendrimers are highly likely to form Im[3 with combining macron]m lattice structures with the parameter a = 5.15 nm, and a domain size that exceeds 100 nm.
