48_12b/2009Inside Cover: Bifunctional Dendrimers: From Robust Synthesis and Accelerated One-Pot Postfunctionalization Strategy to Potential Applications (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 12/2009)

By taking advantage of “click” chemistry's chemoselective nature, a new platform of bifunctional AB2C dendrimers, having acetylene/azide groups anchored within the interior and hydroxy groups on the periphery, has been realized. In their Communication on page 2126 ff. M. Malkoch and co-workers reveal a simple synthetic route for two sets of frameworks. To illustrate the utility of AB2C dendrimers they were used in a one-pot postfunctionalization protocol, in the development of dendritic nanoparticles, and in the formation of hydrogels.
