The PEG derivatives, hexaglycerol octa (aminopropyl) polyoxyethylene (eight-arm [PEG-NH.sub.2], Mn = 15000), pentaerythritol tetra(aminopropyl) polyoxyethylene (four-arm [PEG-NH.sub.2], Mn = 15000), 2,3-bis-[2',3'-di (methylpolyoxyethylene-oxy)-1'-propyl]polyoxyethyleneoxy-1-(aminopropyloxy) propane (dendron
[PEG-NH.sub.2], Mn = 40000), and [alpha]-aminopropyl-[omega]-aminopropoxy polyoxyethylene (linear [PEG-NH.sub.2], Mn = 10000) were purchased from NOF CORPORATION (Tokyo, Japan).
(The word dendron
in Greek means "tree.") But, to avoid confusion, we should point out that they have no particular relationship to the nervous system.
One of the reasons I have gone into research with Dendron
in Newcastle is because if people like me don't get involved, what hope is there.
The metallurgists first observing these crystals thought they resembled trees and called them dendrites, after the Greek word for tree ([TEXT NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII] or dendron
Using new dendrimers with triolefinic 15-membered macrocycles at the end of the dendron
as stabilizers for preparing metallic nanoparticles provides the advantage of minimal surface deactivation for catalytic applications .

From 2008 on, she studied garden design in Chelsea, London and founded the garden design label Dendron

This polyether was obtained by chemical modification of commercial PECH with the dendron
potassium 3,4,5 -tris [4-(n-dodecan-l-yloxy)benzyloxy]benzoate (22).
