Dendrimers are synthetic macromolecules with a tree-like well-defined branched structure.The word “dendrimer” originated from two words, the Greek word dendron, meaning tree, and meros,meaning part.
Many applications of dendrimers are based on their molecular uniformity, multifunctional surface and presence of internal cavities.
Dendrimers as possible drug carriers : Drug molecules can be loaded both in the interior of the dendrimers as well as attached to the surface groups. Dendrimers can function as drug carriers either by encapsulating drugs within the dendritic structure, or by inter-acting with drugs at their terminal functional groups via electrostatic or covalent bonds (prodrug)
