Event Title

P-40 Synthesis and Analysis of Fluorescence-Core PAMAM Dendrimers

Presenter Information

Ryutaro Jacobson, Andrews University

Location

Buller Hall Lobby

Start Date

Description

Colored PAMAM dendrimers that fluorescence are important for use as probes in biochemical research analyses. In this research, perylenetetracarboxylic dianhydride (PTCDA) and blue diamino inks were used to synthesize new diamino core molecules which could be used to grow the highly branched polyamidoamine structure. PTCDA is bright red, chemically stable, poorly water soluble, and highly fluorescent molecule while the blue-diamine compounds are fairly water soluble and commonly used in ink pens. Results of the initial synthesis to modify PTCDA and other diamino-dyes will be presented along with analysis of regarding integrating chromophores into the core structure of dendrimers.
