isotactic macromolecule

A tactic macromolecule, essentially comprising only one species of configurational base unit, which has chiral or prochiral atoms in the main chain in a unique arrangement with respect to its adjacent constitutional units.
Notes:
  1. In an isotactic macromolecule, the configurational repeating unit is identical with the configurational base unit.
  2. An isotactic macromolecule consists of meso diads.
