Physical Structure of Polymers

The molecular weight or molar mass of proteins and nucleic acids (DNA, RNA) is identical for each specific species, e.g., the molecular weights of all casein molecules from a specific source are identical. These polymers are members of a homologous series and are said to be monodisperse or molecularly homogeneous.
