The reaction between atactic poly(2-vinylpyridine) and 1,4-dibromobutane leads to formation of long-range 3D molecular ordering in polymer chains mainly because the side group (pyridine) of the polymer chain changes to a syndotactic configuration. This may enable the production of functional molecular devices that operate on a 3D atomic scale.
