There have been some impressive achievements in the past 112 years in the area of self-assembled dendritic structures. The most notable include self-assembly by non-covalent interactions as reported by Zimmerman, Frechet, and others, Percec's ground-breaking discovery of self-assembling liquid crystalline materials based on dendritic compounds, and the accomplishments of Crooks, among others, in the area of dendritic self-assembled monolayers.
