Dendrimers and Hyperbranched Polymers as Antimicrobial Agents

Dendrimers and hyperbranched polymers may have structural resemblance, but they are different from each other in their topological structures. The potentials of dendrimers and hyperbranched polymers are reported to have various applications in different fields such as material science, nanotechnology, supramolecular chemistry, biomaterials, coatings, adhesives, etc. In this chapter we discuss antimicrobial applications of dendrimers and hyperbranched polymers.
