Molecularly Dispersed Dendrimers in a Polymeric Matrix



Barry J. Bauer, T J. Prosa, D W. Liu, C L. Jackson, D A. Tomalia, Eric J. Amis


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.
