Abstract: Dendritic macromolecules have a significant impact in the field of material sciences and are one of the major starting points for nanotechnology as a result of the numerous modifications that can be conducted, either on the surface or within their molecular infrastructure. Thus taking advantage of their unique architectural, structural, and functional features, a highly efficient three-step convergent chemoenzymatic approach for the synthesis of dendritic polyester/polyamido-ester building block structures using structured triacylglycerols as acylating agent has been designed and developed. This convergent approach is remarkable, because of the simplicity and convenience to synthesize star shaped and linear dendritic building block scaffolds, as it requires no purification other than a simple solvent extraction. Different core molecules have been used to generate a series of novel star shaped and linear dendritic building blocks without requiring any chromatographic separation.
