Solid-phase incorporation of an ATRP initiator for polymer-DNA biohybrids.


The combination of polymers with nucleic acids leads to materials with significantly advanced properties. To obviate the necessity and complexity of conjugating two macromolecules, a polymer initiator is described that can be directly covalently linked to DNA during solid-phase synthesis. Polymer can then be grown from the DNA bound initiator, both in… (More)
