A chemoselective approach for the accelerated synthesis of well-defined dendritic architectures

Chem Commun (Camb). 2007 Jun 14;(22):2249-51. doi: 10.1039/b703547k. Epub 2007 May 14.


A chemoselective and layered growth approach has been developed for the synthesis of dendrimers, combining Click chemistry with traditional esterification/etherification reactions, without the need for activation steps and with excellent overall yields.
