The potential for developing non-natural chiral macromolecular systems with functional specificities approaching biological systems is fascinating. In order to develop intricate macromolecular chiral structures with biofunctional propeties, it will be necessary for the synthetic chemist to combine secondary chiral structures into dissymmetric tertiary structures with specificities approaching those of enzymes. Synthetic Macromolecules with Higher Structural Order presents the complementary areas of synthesis and characterization of higher structurally ordered polymers. The volume is divided into three sections: higher ordering in synthetic polymers, synthetic peptides, and macromolecular assemblies.
