3] was a 6-10-6 arborol, which was prepared as shown in Scheme (3) by the reaction of Iris with tetraester (T) (43).
13) An example of such an arborol is shown in Figure 3 on the next page.
Dendrimers and arborols are prepared by a series of iterative steps, each designed to add one sequence of successive segmental units to the outside of the molecule.
The solubility of one-directional arborols in water decreases dramatically with increasing length of the alkane hydrophobic group, from 13.
In the mid-1980s, Tomalia and others, including arborol maker George R.
Though many of their creations -- which go by such names as starburst dendrimers, arborols and hyperbranched macromolecules -- exhibit a brand of molecular beauty, these designers are driven by much more than aesthetics.
When Tomalia first published his work on dendrimers in 1984, Newkome and his colleagues were busily building giant molecules that they call arborols.
But now his team also routinely builds dumbbell-shaped arborols, called sylvanols.
