Rapid Construction of Large‐size Phenylacetylene Dendrimers up to 12.5 Nanometers in Molecular Diameter

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Only five generations of growth are necessary to generate the phenylacetylene dendrimer 1, the largest pure hydrocarbon (C1398H1278) and one of the largest dendrimers (diameter: 12.5 nm). Architectures prepared by the innovative scheme described in this communication quickly acquire a large size due to the unique pattern of nonlinear growth. In the picture, the circles symbolize benzene rings, the lines CC bridges, and the branched groups on the periphery tBu substituents. (Figure Presented.)
