Sequence-controlled polymer

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Sequence-controlled polymers are macromolecules in which monomer units of different chemical nature are arranged in an ordered fashion.[1] For example, biopolymers such as DNA, RNA and proteins contain ordered sequences of monomers. Non-natural sequence-defined polymers can also be prepared using synthetic methods such as solid-phase synthesis.
