The research and the usage of the dendrimers and metallodendrimer compounds which are also known as supramolecules are attracted by the scientists very fast. The use of these two types of compounds are developed and spread out from the chemical to materials throughout the world. One of the important applications of these supramolecules is as catalyst in the different fields of chemistry and material sciences.
