graft copolymer
A copolymer that is a graft polymer.
In the @C01281@ macromolecules of a graft @C01335@, adjacent blocks in the main chain or side-chains, or both, are constitutionally different, i.e. adjacent blocks comprise @C01288@ derived from different species of @M04017@ or from the same species of @M04017@ but with a different composition or @ST06775@ distribution of constitutional units.
