(Matrix presented) Herein we introduce the concept of an "activated" monomer approach to the synthesis of convergent dendrimers. In this method a set of chemically orthogonal monomers, one of which is an "activated" analogue of the other, is used to rapidly synthesize large, perfect dendrimers with one additional generation being added in each reaction. This method is exemplified by the efficient preparation of a new family of poly(benzyl ester) dendrimers described below.
