The first book on dendrimers!

The authors, pioneers in this scientific field, describe basic principles and current developments in the rapidly evolving field of dendrimer research. All aspects of the subject are covered: the authors provide a historical overview, theoretical background, and discussions of the synthesis and applications of dendrimers. The book thus spans organic chemistry and more application-orientated disciplines like material science and pharmaceutical chemistry. The excellent, detailed list of references further increases the value of the book. The optimal presentation of the structural formulas of dendrimers - highly symmetrical giant molecules - helps the reader understand the sophisticated synthesis quickly.

This book will set the standard for further monographs on this subject.
