Advancement in polymer synthesis

Researchers have developed a new method of polymer synthesis based on two processes: “segregation” and “templating”. These processes have evolved naturally billions of years ago.

Segregation is a process that assists with biochemical regulation and templating involves the transfer of genetic information.

Polymers vary in their functions and have different properties. The ability to accurately synthesise polymers will have major applications for nano-medicine.
