Event Title

P-08 Synthesis of Perylenediimide-core PAMAM Dendrimers

Location

Buller Hall Lobby

Start Date

Description

Many types of colored dendrimers with integrated conjugated systems have been synthesized in academia and industrial laboratories since the 1980s. However, there remains limited commercial production of water-soluble colored PAMAM dendrimers. Our research focuses on using chromophores as the core of a new class of colored nanopolymers. Perylenediimide is a robust, red colored chromophore that can be modified to perylenetetracarboxylic dianhydride which provides attachment sites for growing a PAMAM dendrimer. Results from the synthesis along with a spectroscopic and structural analysis of the products will be presented to show how the properties of perylenediimide change with attached PAMAM dendrimer functionality.
