Is there an analogue of ArcGIS Dissolve function in R? I need to dissolve the overlapping polygons and create a single part object.

I was trying to use gUnionCascaded, but it creates a multipart object. Is there a function in R to do Multipart to singlepart?

Have you tried unionSpatialPolygons() from the maptools package?
