Systematic analysis of the persulfonylation of branched aromatic oligoamines with different arylsulfonyl chlorides allowed optimization of the repetitive steps involved in the synthesis of the sulfonimide-based dendrimers. The optimized procedures afforded the fourth generation N- and pentaphenylene-centered dendrimers with 16 and 32 peripheral groups, respectively. Analysis of products of incomplete substitution showed that the amino groups in aromatic oligoamines are persulfonylated consecutively.
