Abstract

(Figure Presented) Like a big crown (ether): Cross-linked glycerol-based nanoparticles have been synthesized by ring-closing metathesis (RCM) of polyallyl glycerol dendrimers or hyperbranched polymers (see scheme). In organic solvents, the polyether nanoparticles show modest ionophoric abilities.
