We succeeded in the synthesis of a novel poly(amidoamine) dendrimer having diphenyl diselenide at the core. Modification of the dendrimer diselenide by the reaction with glucono-δ-lactone in methanol gave a water-soluble dendrimer diselenide having chiral terminal groups. The structures of dendrimers were satisfactorily confirmed by MAIDI-TOF MS spectrometry, elemental analysis, and NMR spectroscopy. Interestingly, induced circular dichroism (ICD) of the interaction between the diphenyl diselenide core and D-gluconamide periphery of the dendrimer was observed at 300 nm.
