Abstract

The crystal structures and crystalline morphologies of natural and synthetic polymers are briefly reviewed. Analogies and differences between these two systems are presented. Several examples of cross-fertilization of research in the two fields are presented, with emphasis, among natural polymers, on fibrous polypeptides and proteins.
