Multiarm star copolymers containing a b-cyclodextrin core and
poly(2-ethyl-2-oxazoline) arms (CD-POX) were synthesized and
characterized. Synthesized CD-POX star copolymers were able to
form supramolecular dendritic polymers (SDPs) in aqueous
solutions. The ability of SDPs to encapsulate and transfer small
guest molecules and also metal nanoparticles was investigated.
