Abstract:A molecularly imprinted polymer was synthesized using both hyperbranched polyglycerol and Haag type polyether dendrons with estradiol as a core. The attachment of the polyether dendron created a dendrimer that had 64 allyl groups available for crosslinking. Completion of the crosslinking of the dendrimer resulted in a polymer that was not fully crosslinked, therefore the polymer was unable to hold its shape and not be effective as a molecular imprint.
