The emulation of natural processes and the design of chemical reaction sequences inspired by nature is one of the most important driving forces for synthetic macromolecular design. Many proteins fold in solution to yield delicate molecular assemblies stabilized by non-covalent. The key binding principle in nature revolves around the formation of hydrogen bonds. It seems appropriate to transfer this concept when attempting to fold synthetic macromolecules to mimic naturally occurring systems.
