Docking the tails: The triggering of a single cleavage at the core of a new class of dendrimers (see, for example, the second generation dendron) results in a spontaneous chain fragmentation and the release all of the tail (reporter) units. Such dendrimers may be applied as a general platform for prodrugs or sensor molecules for enzymatic activity.
