Broadband dielectric relaxation spectroscopy (DRS) was employed to study molecular dynamics of blends composed of generation 3 poly(amidoamine) (PAMAM) dendrimers with ethylenediamine core and amino surface groups and four linear polymers: polypropylene oxide) - PPO, two block copolymers, polypropylene oxide)/poly(ethylene oxide) - PPO/PEO with different mol ratios (29/6 and 10/31) and polyethylene oxide) - PEO. The results were generated over a broad range of frequency. Dielectric spectra of dendrimers in PPO matrix reveal slight shift of normal and segmental processes to higher frequency with increasing concentration of dendrimers. In the 29PPO/6PEO matrix, no effect of concentration on the average relaxation time for normal and segmental processes was observed. In the 10PPO/31PEO matrix the relaxation time of the segmental process increases with increasing dendrimer concentration, while in the PEO matrix, local processes in dendrimers slow down. A detailed analysis of the effect of concentration of dendrimers and morphology of polymer matrix on the dielectric properties of dendrimer nanocomposites will be presented.
