UK researchers reported a new highly effective method to construct large molecules of a defined size using simple templates. Taking inspiration from nature, which uses sophisticated templates such as the ribosome to make precise complex molecules, Harry Anderson’s group at the University of Oxford has developed a new strategy to synthesise macromolecules with precise lengths using basic templates.
