Description

The goal of this project is to optimize PAMAM dendrimer synthesis reactions by studying their kinetics. PAMAM dendrimers are produced by reacting methyl acrylate with ethylene diamine, so determining the best reaction conditions for these compounds will help improve dendrimer production. Controls for reactant feed rate and reactor cooling are to be used so that the determined ideal conditions can be maintained. This has the benefit of requiring less processing time as well as improving the ease with which the reaction can be monitored by a researcher.
