Title: Molecularly Dispersed Dendrimers in a Polymeric Matrix
Published: March 01, 1999
Abstract: Interpenetrating polymer networks are formed by dissolving poly(amidoamine) dendrimers in 2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate and polymerizing with dendrimer contents between 1 and 25 mass % containing dendrimers from generation 6 through 11. Small angle x-ray scattering shows that they are uniformly dispersed in the polymer matrix. At loadings of 10% or more, the dendrimers shrink in size, but remain dispersed. Transmission electron microscopy confirms that the dendrimers are well dispersed.
