SPECIFICALLY INTERACTING POLYMERS – From Selective Adhesion toward Specific Recognition

The ability to control interactions in synthetic polymers as precisely as in proteins will have a significant impact on polymer and material sciences. The present proposal explores broadly applicable routes toward synthetic polymers having the capability of specifically interacting with distinct targets such as small molecules, surfaces, or material interfaces. The multitude of protein functions in biological systems that rely on specific interactions, reveals undoubtedly the opportunities offered by Specifically Interacting Polymers. This project will encourage the synthesis of next-generation biomimetic materials and functional polymers that offer exciting new possibilities and promising functions.
