Olefin metathesis for dendrimer assembly

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Conditions for the self-metathesis assembly of dendrons with alkenyl focal points into dendrimers are developed. Assembly of more complex central cores is the subject of current efforts. Olefin metathesis has become a powerful method in organic synthesis. Several ruthenium-based alkylidiene complexes have led to considerable success in the ring-opening metathesis and ring-closing metathesis reactions in application to the total synthesis of natural products. A preliminary study on the use of metathesis to assemble benzyl aryl ether dendrimers is reported. Self-metathesis yielding dendrimers is observed and the effects of solvent, temperature and reaction conditions on final product yield is optimized.
