Research on dendrimers has exploded in the last fifteen years, moving from the establishment of synthetic methodologies towards sophisticated applications. Designing Dendrimers covers both fundamental and applicative aspects of dendrimer research. Chapters devoted to basic principles, synthetic methods and strategies, and advanced characterization techniques are integrated by chapters illustrating the full potential of dendrimers in various fields, like artificial photosynthesis, multi-redox pool systems, diagnostics, and design of functional nanostructures. Emphasis on future developments makes this book perfect for scientists and graduate and postgraduate students in dendrimer research.

Author Biography

Sebastiano Campagna is Professor of Physical Chemistry at the University of Messina and is Chairman of the Gruppo Italiano di Fotochimica (GIF), the Italian branch of the European Photochemistry Association. His current research deals with supramolecular photochemistry and artificial photosynthesis. Paola Ceroni, PHD, is an Associate Professor at the University of Bologna. Her current research is focused on the photochemistry and electrochemistry of molecular and supramolecular systems, with an emphasis on photoactive dendrimers. Fausto Puntoriero, PHD, is a researcher at the University of Messina, where his research deals with the development of functional and photo- and redox-active multicomponent systems.
