Abstract

The direct, graft-through, ring-opening metathesis polymerisation (ROMP) of unprotected DNA macromonomers is reported. By tuning the polymerisation conditions, good control is achieved, enabling the rapid and efficient synthesis of DNA-containing bottlebrush copolymers, without the need for protection of the DNA bases.
