Nanocomposites of Molecularly Dispersed Polyamidoamine (PAMAM) Dendrimers



G Kim, C L. Jackson, T J. Prosa, Da-Wei Liu, Barry J. Bauer


The preparation of PAMAM dendrimer nanocomposites in an IPN polymer matrix was investigated as a function of generation using transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and small angle X-ray scattering (SAXS). To obtain image contrast in TEM, sodium phosphotungstic acid (NaPTA) was used. The spherical dendrimer shape is observed and there is no obvious change in size relative to that of dendrimers in methanol solution.
