A general characteristics of the methods of polymer synthesis has been prezented with a particular attention paid to the structure control in the synthesis. The specific features of conformation of the natural and synthetic polymers have been discussed and the consequences of conformational features to the physical and mechanical properties of polymers presented. The importance of macromolecular compounds in living organisms has been indicated and an example of the capability of muscles to move has been used to illustrate the excellent adaption of natural polymeric structures to the biological functions performed by them.
