Abstract : Oligomers and polymers of precisely defined length and constitution are not new synthetic targets, but modern synthetic reactions have provided access to novel and diverse structures. These extremely well-defined compounds serve as models for their higher, less well-defined homologues, and they can reveal important information relating to physical, electronic and optical responses in polymers. Described here are the modern synthetic, and biochemical approaches to linear oligomers and polymers of near exact molecular composition. The current and potential uses of these interesting compounds is outlined. jg p.2
