The combination of living anionic polymerization and thiol-ene photoaddition techniques is a convenient and versatile route towards well-defined polymeric amphiphiles and biohybrids (bioorganic-synthetic polymers carrying peptide, sugar, etc. moieties). The synthesis and aqueous solution behavior of homopolymer and block copolymer amphiphiles, especially of glycopolymers, based on polybutadiene will be presented. The glycopolymers can readily self-assemble into large vesicles, either consisting of a symmetric or an asymmetric membrane, the latter case representing a (primitive) mimic of a biological cell membrane.
