- This review is focused on the recent use of cyclotriphosphazene-based dendrimers in biomedicine. Since its synthesis for the first time in 1834, cyclotriphosphazene has been an important compound of phosphorus chemistry as a scaffold, and a large number of cyclotriphosphazene derivatives have been synthesized and applied in various fields such as biology, catalysis, fluorescence, nanomaterials, etc. Today, one of the most important uses concerns its biomedical applications. In this review, the recent developments (since 2012) of cyclotriphosphazene for major pharmaceutical applications are highlighted and analyzed.
