About this book


This is the first book of its kind to solely focus on silicon containing dendritic polymers. The contributions of those experts who either originally introduced each field or who played a major role in its progress are reported. The developments in each of the major areas of this field are presented from their origins to the present.

Each chapter is held to the highest scientific standards. Hence, 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.

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)
