Researchers Develop New Class of Multi-functional Polymers

A group of researchers at the Imperial College, London, have fabricated a new multi-functional polymer having an impressive molecular precision. The sequence-defined new class of polymer could open up new opportunities in areas such as nanotechnology, drug delivery, and information storage. The researchers have used a new way of synthesis, called Nanostar Sieving, which is a combination of liquid-phase synthesis and molecular sieving. The new method enables researchers to completely
