Dendrimers are unique class of polymers which play an important role in emerging nanotechnology. Novel drug delivery is one of the most attractive potential applications of dendrimers. Dendrimers are macromolecules having highly branched, 3D structure, nanoscale architecture with monodispersity and high functionality. Dendrimers are dominated by the functional groups on the molecular surface for example; a dendrimer can be water soluble when its end groups like a carboxylic group. These features make it attractive candidates as drug carrier for controlled release or targeted delivery. Dendrimer is a smart polymer having various applicability in pharmaceutics, industry and diagnosis.
