A new family of dendrons, amphiphilic poly(alkyl ether) dendrons, are readily polymerized in a living manner. Ring-opening metathesis polymerization of the dendritic macromonomers yields single polymer molecules and cylindrical core-shell nanostructures with narrow molecular weight distribution and a controlled degree of polymerization.
