Dendrimers with chiral branch components and chiral central units display remarkable CD effects. An interesting case of diastereoselectivity occurs in the synthesis of these compounds: The branch bromide 1 with (S) configuration at the four nonspecific centers can be coupled with the triol 2; the (R) branch bromide 1, on the other hand, cannot!
