Synthesis, Characterization, and Catalytic Applications of 1-3 nm-Diameter Dendrimer-Encapsulated Nanoparticles

In this talk we show that dendrimers can be used as both templates and stabilizers for preparing nearly monodisperse transition-metal nanoclusters suitable for fundamental studies and for use in catalysis. These interesting new materials are prepared by sorbing metal ions (Cu, Pt, Pd, Au, Ru, etc.) into poly(amidoamine) (PAMAM) dendrimers where they complex with interior tertiary amine groups.
