Four generations of poly(aryl ether) monodendrons labeled with pyrene at the focus were synthesized and characterized by a combination of NMR, size-exclusion chromatography with light scattering detection (SEC-LS), and electronic spectroscopy. The monodendrons were then studied by magnetic resonance and fluorescence techniques. Translational diffusion coefficients in THF-d8, acetonitrile-d3, and cyclohexane-d12 were measured by Pulsed-Field-Gradient NMR and ranged from 2.2 x 10-5 cm2/sec for methoxypyrene in acetonitrile to 3.4 x 10-6 cm2/sec for the fourth generation monodendron in THF. Molecular radii were calculated from the diffusion coefficients by the Stokes-Einstein equation. In THF, the radii increased ...
