This chapter presents a short overview of the synthesis, characterization, and application of linear glycopolymers. Focus is devoted to linear glycopolymers consisting of pendant sugar ligands on the side chains. Selected examples will highlight the different approaches for synthesizing glycopolymers, their multivalent binding modes, the characterization of their binding affinity, and the use in biotechnological and biomedical applications.
