Abstract: Harnessing natural-based renewable molecular resources to construct functional synthetic green polymers is a promising research frontier at the interface of sustainable/green chemistry, polymer chemistry and nanobiotechnology. As natural glycoprotein mimics/analogues and biocompatible building blocks of nanobio- materials, synthetic functional glycopolypeptides and their structural/functional analogues have attracted great attentions in recent years. This mini-perspective article reviewed current synthetic strategies and methods of glycopolypeptides and their analogues. The pros and cons of the synthesis protocols were discussed, moreover, possible future perspectives in this field were also stated.
