Dendrimer

A polymer having a regular branched structure. If suitably functionalized (such as the benzyl alcohol-substituted) it may be used as a soluble support, in which case the desired, dendrimer-supported, material may be isolated by size-exclusion chromatography. Dendrimers may also be attached to a polymer and used as a solid support, with significantly increased loading over the initial resin.
