Synthesizing the raw data needed for a wide variety of industrial applications, this work supplies up-to-date advanced in research on star, hyperbranched and dendritic polymers. It provides detailed descriptions of the size and shape of the molecules that make up these polymers, as well as their biological advances, low viscosity in solution and substrate-holding properties.
