Exploiting the physicochemical properties of dendritic polymers for environmental and biological applications

Author affiliations

Abstract

In this perspective we first examine the rich physicochemical properties of dendritic polymers for hosting cations, anions, and polyaromatic hydrocarbons. We then extrapolate these conceptual discussions to the use of dendritic polymers in humic acid antifouling, oil dispersion, copper sensing, and fullerenol remediation. In addition, we review the state-of-the-art of dendrimer research and elaborate on its implications for water purification, environmental remediation, nanomedicine, and energy harvesting.
