Abstract: The formation of new supramolecular dendrimers from interlocked host/guest unimers is reported. Unimer entities have two host binding sites (ßCD) and two guest binding sites (two adamantly or two p-tert-butylbenzoate moities). Hosts and guest residues are linked through an EDTA bridge. The formation of dendrimer-like (Cayley tree) structures is demonstrated by TEM measurements.
