Unique properties determine the utility of polymer molecules and derive from their morphology and flexibility. Crystals do not display those properties because they have smaller aspect ratios and are stiffer. We argue that these limitations might be overcome by growth processes of controlled aggregation that mimic polymerization. This rising area of interest is discussed and recent experimental evidence reviewed.
