A series of nucleobase-grafted polycaprolactones have been prepared which exhibits a high complementary ability in solution and solid states owing to the formation of uracil-adenine pairs by induced hierarchical self-assembly. In addition, they can selforganize into spherical structure and result in excellent biomaterial properties.
