Furthermore, it is illustrated that the molecular and nanoscale structures have a direct impact on the macroscopic materials properties of the gel-phase network. We discuss the structural effects on macroscopic gelation in terms of molecular size, shape and chirality, and clearly outline the specific advantages of using dendritic structures for this type of soft materials application.
