Abstract

original image

Dendritic poly(phenylazomethine)s with dodecyl end groups have been synthesized. These dendrimers showed a stepwise radial complexation with metals and unique self-assembled structures. In their Full Paper on page 800 ff., K. Yamamoto et al. describe the synthesis and characterization of these new metal-storage nanocapsules.
