A new class of dendrimers with open-resorcinarenes has been synthesized in good yields (77-85%). The open-resorcinarenes showed a high capacity for functionalization, having eight hydroxyl groups. The Williamson reaction with N,N-bis(2-azidoethyl)-2-bromo acetamide did not show any steric effect, obtaining sixteen azide terminal groups, which gave us the possibility to obtain a high molecular weight dendrimer via the azide-alkyne click reaction with prop-2-yn-1-yl-(ibuprofen)L-serinate derivatives to obtain the triazole ring spacers and the L-serinate(ibuprofen) derivatives as terminal groups. Also, we carried out the deprotection reaction of the L-serinate moiety terminal groups of the dendrimer 10 in good yields (95%). Three novel open-resorcinarene den-drimers with sixteen ibuprofen-L-serinate derivatives and hydroxyl, tert-butyl, and carboxylic acid; therefore, with three different terminal groups, with possible nanomedical activity are reported.

Keywords: Open-resorcinarenes, dendrimers, L-serine, ibuprofen, click reaction, triazole.
