Peptide/protein-synthetic polymer conjugates, which covalently combine one or more copies of a peptide sequence or protein with one or more synthetic polymer elements. offer unique possibilities to integrate the properties and functions of bio(macro)molecules and synthetic polymers in a single hybrid material This article provides a status report of the Field of peptide/protein-synthetic polymer conjugates Fust. the main synthetic strategies For the preparation of peptide/protein-synthetic polymer-conjugates will be discussed In the last two sections, selected properties and applications of peptide-synthetic polymer conjugates and protein-synthetic polymer conjugates will be highlighted.
