Conjugated Dendrimers with Poly(Phenylenevinylene) and Poly(Phenyleneethynylene) Scaffolds

Pp. 185-234 (50)

Joaquín C. García-Martínez, Enrique Díez-Barra and Julián Rodríguez-López


Fully conjugated dendrimers are interesting materials as active chromophores for a range of optoelectronic applications. The rigid and well-defined framework of these materials enables structure-property relationships to be more easily understood. In this paper, we summarize the main strategies for the synthesis of poly(phenylenevinylene)- and poly(phenyleneethynylene)-based dendrimers as well as approaches to hybrid dendritic structures that combine both scaffolds. Along with the synthetic features, some physical and chemical properties are also discussed.
