Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Click chemistry, in its various guises, has, arguably, had a transformational impact on facile approaches to macromolecular modification. While the versatility and (bio)orthogonality of the Cu-catalyzed alkyne-azide reaction has been repeatedly demonstrated many other ‘click’ reactions are still very much in their infancy with respect to applications in macromolecular synthesis and modification.

This special issue of Polymers aims to highlight recent advances in the applications of ‘click’ chemistry in macromolecular science and will serve as a primary source for both new and experienced practitioners of these remarkable chemistries.
