Self-assembly of poly(propylene imine) glycodendrimers: role of aromatic interactions in the formation of necklace- and donut-like nanostructures

Author affiliations

Abstract

Here, we report on the key feature of the third and fifth generation poly(propylene imine) dendrimers, bearing on the surface hydrophobic phenyl and hydrophilic maltose groups, to self-assemble into necklace- and donut-like supramolecular complex structures after ultrasound treatment of the native aggregation state.
