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.

In range and perspective and research information, there is nothing that compares with this work. As the first book of its kind to address the area of synthetic macromolecules with higher structural ordering, it will be of interest to a diverse group of scientists including organic and physical chemists, peptide chemists, polymer chemists, biochemists, molecular biologists, and molecular scientists ... no library worthy of the name can afford to be without it ... a most commendable book. Current Engineering Practice ... will serve as an excellent reference book and as a guide to new comers and established scientists in this interdisciplinary research area. For many of them, this work is the indispensible starting point. Current Engineering Practice
