The solid-phase synthesis of hyperbranched dendritic polyamides was attempted using two different monomers based on 3,5-diaminobenzoic acid. Growth of the dendritic molecules past the fourth generation was extremely sluggish. The hyperbranched molecules were cleaved from the solid support and examined by gel permeation chromatography, and other spectroscopic methods.
