Dendrimer-based hybrid fibers as potential platform for 1D-objects in nanotechnology
Dendrimers in Biomedical Applications, Klajnert, B.; Peng, L.; Cena, V., ed.
|Abstract||Nanofabrication via directed selfassembly has emerged as a promising approach for novel functional materials with unique optical, magnetic, and electronic properties. This book chapter reviews recent progress in research on dendrimerbased hybrid nanofibers as potential template for 1Dobjects in nanotechnology. Emphasis has been given to direct selfassembly of organicinorganic nanomaterials to fabricate welldefined hybrid nanofibers. These are based on amino terminated poly(propylene imine) (PPI) dendrimers insitu templating inorganic moieties. The chapter starts with brief overview of dendritic architectures as encapsulating, stabilizing and directing agents, followed by the presentation of a simple approach to fabricate high aspect ratio of µmlengths semiconductors nanofibers decorated with discrete Au nanoparticles. The generated nanoalloy fibers are exhibited unique optoelectronic properties with strong anisotropy essential to manufacture the next generations of miniaturised electronic, optoelectronic and biomedical devices. <br /><br />Dendrimers in Biomedical Applications<br />ISBN 978-184973-729-6|
