Water-soluble poly(alkyl aryl ether) dendrimers have been explored for their use as hosts of organic substrates in aqueous media. Prototypical photoreactions, namely, photo Fries reaction of (a)1-naphthyl benzoate and (b) 1-naphthyl phenyl ester and R-cleavage reaction of (a) dibenzyl ketones and(b) benzoin alkyl ethers, have been examined. We find that a dendritic microenvironment not only restricts the mobility of radical intermediates but also rigidly encapsulates the substrate, intermediates, and products from leaking to the bulk environment. Comparative studies of the same photoreactions in micellar media demonstrate that dendritic media offer much better constrainment than the micelles.
