In this work, we study the internal density distribution in a dendrimer or starburst polymers system at different generations. We have used different techniques like small angle X-ray scattering, quasi-elastic light scattering and a Molecular dynamics simulation. Obtained data, compared with the literature ones, proposed that lower generation dendrimers display an internal self-similar structure, whereas the higher generations tend to exhibit a spherical homogenous dense structure.

Scaling properties in the internal structure of dendrimer systems

Abstract

In this work, we study the internal density distribution in a dendrimer or starburst polymers system at different generations. We have used different techniques like small angle X-ray scattering, quasi-elastic light scattering and a Molecular dynamics simulation. Obtained data, compared with the literature ones, proposed that lower generation dendrimers display an internal self-similar structure, whereas the higher generations tend to exhibit a spherical homogenous dense structure.
