A novel parallel monomer combination approach to manipulating the architectural disposition of dendritic macromolecules is described. It harnesses the synthetic speed and power of the double-stage convergent growth approach and classical parallel synthesis to prepare diverse series of dendrimers that possess a predetermined number and arrangement of 'internal' functional moieties. This methodology is applied for the preparation of a novel family of poly(benzyl ether) dendrimers possessing 1-15 'internal' allyloxy groups, which are displayed in a highly controlled, layer-specific, generational manner.
