The objective of the proposed work is to achieve efficient phase transfer catalysis in fluorophase. For this purpose, we had developed a new dendrimer design that can potentially be used as the amphiphilic nanocontainer. Since dendrimers are too expensive to synthesize, we are approaching novel polymers as the target nanocontainers to achieve the required properties. The dendrimer design however provides an avenue for the fundamental studies. In this report, we outline the design and synthesis of a new class of fluorocarbon based polymer micelles. The properties of these polymers are being investigated currently in our laboratories.
