Frechet-type dendrimers with a phloroglucinol core or a tetraphenylporphyrin core (Aida's dendrimers) were synthesized. Spectroscopic examination revealed that fullerene is bound to the interior space of these dendrimers. The findings indicate that one can regard the dendrimers as novel host compounds bearing a large interior cavity.
