Title: 2-or 3-dimensional geometric structures

Abstract: Nucleic acid analogues provide a particularly useful tool for the preparation of complex polymeric structures of defined geometry because they are relatively stable to reaction conditions for the preparation of such structures and provide the opportunity to introduce reactive groups which would not be possible with usual nucleic acids. These supramolecular structures can be used to form fine networks in nanometer size, for the preparation of e.g., computer chips, new materials/polymers with conductivity and/or insulator properties, and robot arms in nanometer scale.
