During the last two decades silicon-containing dendritic polymers have become one of the fastest growing areas of development in polymer science. The eruption of interest in these new polymers stems from their unprecedented molecular architecture, unique resulting properties and the realization that they represent ideal building blocks for chemical nanotechnology.

This is the first book to solely focus on silicon-containing dendritic polymers. The contributions of those experts who originally introduced each field or played a major role in its progress are reported. The developments in all major areas of this field are presented from their origins to the present. It is anticipated that this text will become an invaluable guide and vanguard of reference for experienced scientists interested in the fields of polymer and material science, synthetic chemistry, and nanotechnology. It will also serve advanced graduate students either as a source of creative inspiration or as a textbook for appropriate courses.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This is the first book that is dedicated to the subject of silicon-containing dendritic polymers. . intended readers are individuals in a variety of fields including synthetic chemistry, polymer science, materials science, silicon chemistry and nanotechnology. . I highly recommend this excellent book to scientists in each of those respective fields. . very useful as reading material for an advanced level postgraduate course in either Polymer Science and Engineering or in Materials Science and Engineering. It is a welcome addition to the materials chemistry literature." (Stephen J. Clarson, Silicon, Vol. 1, 2009)
