(Figure Presented) Dendrimers are attractive scaffolds for catalysis, since catalytic sites can be isolated and the catalysts are recoverable and reusable. Herein, we show that conformationally constrained molecules have better access to dendritic cores compared to the more flexible counterparts. The results reported here should have implications in utilizing dendrimers as scaffolds for artificial selectivity in catalysis.
