    • 1. Submitted By SAIKAT GHOSH UG-IV Under the Guidance of Dr. Ketousetuo KuotsuDepartment of Pharmaceutical Technology, Jadavpur University
    • 2. The word Dendrimer comes from the Greek word ”DENDRON” meaning tree and“MEROS” meaning partA dendrimer is generally described as a macromolecule, which is characterized byits highly branched 3D structure that provides a high degree of surface functionalityand versatility. Dendrimers have often been referred to as the “Polymers of the 21stcentury”.The first dendrimers were synthesised divergently by Vögtle in 1978, byDenkewalter and coworkers at Allied Corporation as polylysine dendrimers in1981, by Donald Tomalia at Dow Chemical in 1983 and in 1985, and by Newkome in1985. In 1990 a convergent synthesis was introduced by Jean FrechetThey called themarborols fromthe Latin word ‘arbor’ also meaning a tree.
    • 3. Dendrimer Designing should take into consideration:-(1) Architecturing(2) Synthesis(3) Properties & Applications of the dendrimer
    • 4. STRUCTURE OF DENDRIMERSDendrimers are built from a starting atom, such as nitrogen, to which carbonand other elements are added by a repeating series of chemical reactions thatproduce a spherical branching structureSTAR BUST EFFECT:Dendrimers of lower generations- asymmetric shape andpossess moreopen structures - higher generationdendrimers-globularstructure - become denselypacked - When acritical branched state isreached-cannot further grow due to lack of space-STAR BUST EFFECT Fig:STRUCTURE OF DENDRIMER
    • 5. COMPONENTS:-(1) Generation(2) Shell(3) Pincer(4) End Group

    • 8. Synthesis of dendrimersMonomers lead to a Monodisperse polymer, tree-like, or generationalstructure.There are three defined methods of dendrimer synthesisDivergent synthesis - assemble the molecule from the core, extendingradially to the peripheryConvergent methods-start at the surface and proceed inwards, beforethe attachment of pre-synthesised dendrons to the core.Double exponential and mixed growthTo synthesize dendrimers repeated reaction consisting of many steps isneeded to protect the active site --it is difficult even if both methods areused--obstacles to the synthesis of large quantities of dendrimers
    • 9. Different growth methods Divergent growth methodAdvantages of convergent system:-Relatively easy to purify the desired productoccurrence of defects in the final structure isminimised.Possible to introduce subtle engineering into thedendritic structure by precise placement offunctional groups at the periphery of the Mixed growth & double exponentialmacromolecules
    • 10. FACTORS AFFECTING DENDRIMERS Intrinsic viscosity Solvent Effect of p H Effect of salt Effect of concentration Biological like cytotoxicity with increase in the generations of polymer Correlation between intrinsic viscosity and Molecular weight

The wide range of activities that wereobserved indicates that dendrimer systems can be fine-tuned to obtain any desired level of activity in protein–carbohydrate interactions.
