Highly specialized polymers with specific functionality has attracted strong research interest worldwide.
Generally, functionality is defined as the “quality of being suited to serve a purpose well” (according to the Oxford English Dictionary).
In polymer science however, functionality is commonly used to describe various features of polymers, from individual chemical groups and their reactivity, to the unique properties of macromolecules arising as a consequence.
