Zeroth- and first-generation poly(amido)amine dendrimers have been functionalized with dithiocarbamate end groups and reacted with ruthenium complexes, to form metallodendrimers. Monomeric ruthenium dithiocarbamate complexes were also prepared as model compounds and their spectroscopic data compared with those of the metallodendrimers. The novel compounds were characterized using NMR spectroscopy (1H and 13C) and mass spectrometry. The compound [Ru(S2CNMe2)(PPh3)(η5-C 5H5)] has also been characterized crystallographically.
