Abstract

(Chemical Equation Presented) Two series of poly(propylene imine), PPI, dendrimers terminated with a redox-active donor, 4-dimethylaminobenzyl (4-DMAB), including their respective nondendronized model compounds, are reported. In these two series, a positive dendritic effect was observed for the formation of charge-transfer (CT) complexes between the dendrimers and 7,7,8,8- tetracyanoquinodimethane (TCNQ). However, the nondendronized compounds did not form CT complexes with TCNQ, even though their redox potentials are similar to those of the 4-DMAB units attached to the dendrimers. © 2005 American Chemical Society.
