Dendrimers are highly hyperbranched molecules containing a large number of functions on the surface. These functions can be easily modified giving interesting applications to the resulting macromolecules. We have prepared dendrimers containing a large number of 15-membered macrocycles in their structures. These compounds were able to stabilised Pd(0) and Pt(0) nanoparticles; materials used in catalysis. We are also interested in other applications in the field of liquid crystals and nanostructured materials. This work is developed in collaboration with Dr. Anne Marie Caminade.
