A method of detecting unreacted termini within a dendritic structure is achieved by exposing a dendrimer to a single generating compound capable of bonding to and tagging a deprotected but uncoupled termini. A signal generated by the signal generating compound to an otherwise uncoupled termini provides detection of the unreacted termini.
