|Authors:||Ghosh, Subha Sankar|
|Abstract:||When the full potential of dendrimers is determined, the agonies of cancer patients could be alleviated to a large extent. A class of nanomaterials called dendrimers have been found particularly useful in cancer treatment. Dendrimers have often been refered to as the “Polymers of the 21<sup>st</sup> century”. The name ‘Dendrimer’ comes from the Greek <i>dendron</i>, meaning, "tree". They are nearly perfect monodisperse (a consistent size and form) macromolecules with a regular and highly branched three-dimensional architecture having an average size of around 5×10<sup>-9</sup>m, which can be artificially synthesized.|
