Application

2,2-Bis(hydroxymethyl)propionic acid based fourth generation tridendron dendrimer having 48 hydroxyl groups was synthesized.
2,2-Bis(hydroxymethyl)propionic acid is commonly used as an AB2 monomer for the synthesis of hyperbranched (hb) polymers and dendrimers.
2,2-Bis(hydroxymethyl)propionic acid was used in the synthesis and characterization studies of polyurethane dispersion modified with polymethylsiloxane (Si-PUD) and its nanocomposites incorporated with clays.2,2-Bis(hydroxymethyl)propionic acid based dendrimers have potent applications as delivery systems for potent anticancer drugs such as cisplatin and doxorubicin, as well as agents for both boron neutron capture therapy and photodynamic therapy.
Simple derivatives of this acid have been used to construct dendritic architectures via the "click" azide-acetylene cycloaddition.

Cationic aliphatic polycarbonates bearing primary ammonium side chains have been developed with relatively high molecular weights and controlled macromolecular architectures. These polycarbonates exhibit reasonable antimicrobial activity against Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria. The prepared homopolymers could be effective against Gram-negative bacteria

Amine-modified amphiphilic hyperbranched polymers (MePEG-H104-Nx) were prepared from hyperbranched 2,2-bis(methylol)propionic acid polyester (H104) by decoration with polyethylene glycol monomethyl ether (MePEG) and different classes of oligo(ethylenimine)s. By using the MePEG-H104-Nx polymers as stabilizers, gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) were prepared in an

A homologous series of hyperbranched polyesters (HBPEs) was successfully synthesized via an esterification reaction of 2,2-bis(methylol)propionic acid (bis-MPA) with pentaerythritol. The molecular weights of the HBPEs were 2160, 2660, 4150 and 5840 g/mol, respectively. These HBPEs were used as additives
