Vapor-liquid equilibria for dendritic-polymer solutions were obtained using a classic gravimetric-sorption method; the amount of solvent absorbed by the dendrimer was measured as a function of solvent vapor pressure. Three series of dendrimers, each with the same tertiary amine core structure, but different surface groups, were investigated in a variety of organic solvents in the range 50-75°C. The dendrimer surface groups were dodecylamines, octadecyl amides, and polyisobutylene. Solvent absorption depends strongly on dendrimer composition and generation number.
