Emerging bioinspired polymers: glycopolypeptides


This article highlights the very recent advances in glycopolypeptide synthesis via NCA polymerization and first studies on stimuli-responsive solution behavior and self-assembling structures. Yet glycopolypeptides are almost exclusively considered as smart biofunctional materials for use in biomedical applications, for instance in targeted drug delivery, but also have high potential for usage as structural materials to fabricate bioinspired hierarchical structures.
