Abstract

Structural and kinetic exchange properties of supramolecular polymers composed of mono- and bivalent ureidopyrimidinone-based monomers are investigated in aqueous solutions. It is shown that exchange dynamics can be controlled by mixing different types of monomers. This tunability widens the scope in their design as biomaterials.
