"Dendrimers and hyperbranched Polymers-Synthesis to Applications" is a book on highly branched macromolecules,an advance high performance class of polymeric materials.

The book covers the basic understanding, the synthesis, characterization, unique properties and potential applications of more perfect architectural dendrimers as well as the less perfect hyperbranched polymers.It discussed the detail coverage of almost all known subclasses of dendritic polymers.

Chapter one deals with the basic concepts of dendrimers,dendrons and hyperbranched polymers,their structural characteristics,challenges for their syntheses by different synthetic routes,general techniques for their characterization and unique properties with respect to the other classes of macromolecules along with the potential for their novel applications.Chapter two to ten described the comprehensive reviews of different subclasses of dendritic polymers such as hydrocarbons,amides based macromolecules and others with respect to their synthesis,characterzation,properties and valuable applications.
