Abstract

Molecular dynamic simulations were carried out to investigate structural properties of polyamidoamine (PAMAM) dendrimers. The size and shape of the dendrimers were analyzed as a function of the generation number. It was found that at high generations, a transition from an open self-similar density distribution to a spherical homogeneous compact structure takes place.
