A series of dendrons bearing various number of fluorenyl donor groups have been synthesized. First, the reference compound 2-(bromomethyl)-9H-fluorene (8) with one fluorenyl unit, then dendron 10, with two fluorenyl arms, and finally new generation dendrons, 11 and 12, bearing four peripheral fluorenyl arms were synthesized and characterized. A series of different generations of porphyrin dendrimers, obtained from these dendrons are also presented. Preliminary results on higher generation dendrimers are reported as well. Under mild basic conditions, surprisingly, a new compound 1 incorporating a fluorenyl unit in the cycle and three pendant fluorenyl arms was obtained by an intramolecular reaction of brominated tetrapod dendron 12.
