With chapters from highly skilled, experienced, and renowned scientists and researchers from around the globe, Dendrimers for Drug Delivery provides an abundance of information on dendrimers and their applications in the field of drug delivery.

The volume begins with an introduction to dendrimers, summarizing dendrimer applications and the striking features of dendrimers. It goes on to present the details of usual properties, structure, classification, and methods of synthesis, with relevant examples. The toxicity of dendrimers is also discussed. The chapter authors provide an exhaustive amount of information about dendrimers and their biomedical applications, including biocompatibility and toxicity aspects, a very useful feature.

This informative volume will be valuable resource that will help readers to create products derived from dendrimers and navigate through the regulatory, manufacturing, and quality control hurdles. It will be an important resource for researchers, scientists, upper-level students, and industry professionals.

Key features:

  • Presents a concise and informative introduction to dendrimers, summarizing dendrimer applications and the striking features of dendrimers
  • Looks at computational approaches to elucidate dendrimers, embracing classification, synthesis, and nomenclature with simulation
  • Explores issues related to applications relevant to biological systems in particular, providing an abundance of information about dendrimers and their biocompatibility and toxicity
  • Covers dendrimers for controlled release drug delivery and considers dendrimers’ ability to respond to alterations in pH, temperature, light, etc.
  • Describes the uses of dendrimers for oral drug delivery
  • Explores different aspect of dendrimer-mediated gene delivery
  • Looks at customized applications of dendrimers as nanocarriers for anticancer drugs
  • Describes the dendrimeric architecture for effective antimicrobial therapy
