Supramolecule self assembly polyamidoamine (PAMAM) dendrimer refers to the chemical systems made up of a discrete number of assembled molecular subunits or components. These strategies involve the covalent assembly of hierarchical components reactive monomers, branch cells or dendrons around atomic or molecular cores according to divergent/convergent dendritic branching principles, systematic filling of space around a core with shells (layers) of branch cells. The polydispersity index (PDI) for the Supramolecule megamer are pretty closed to one, are in agreement with the Poisson probability distribution. Polyamidoamine (PAMAM) dendrimer G1-G1 that it was PAMAM Megamer NH2, COOH end group synthesized and characterized by FT-IR, 1H NMR, 13C NMR spectra and Gel Permeation Chromatography (GPC).
