During the past few decades, the field of polymer chemistry has developed dramatically, allowing for the synthesis of well-defined macromolecules with controlled composition, chain ends, chain lengths, molecular-weight distribution and topology. With various modern synthetic strategies, polymers with precisely controlled molecular structures can be synthesized. Here we show how rationally designed polymeric systems can tackle engineering problems such as water purification and fuel cell applications.
