Synthetic glycopolypeptides, as analogues of natural glycoproteins, are an emerging class of bioinspired polymers with excellent biocompatibility. They can mimic the structure and functions of natural glycoproteins, and show great potential for biological applications, such as biomolecular recognition, drug/gene delivery, cell adhesion and targeting, as well as cell culture and tissue engineering. Nevertheless, the efficient and lab/pilot scale preparation of well-defined and tunable glycopolypeptides with complex polymer structures, has been a challenging field until now. The fast development of "Click" chemistry/reaction offers versatile and powerful tools for the synthesis of glycopolypeptides. The state of arts for the development of new "Click" synthetic strategies and methods in the preparation of glycopolypeptides, mainly including post-polymerization glycosylation of synthetic polypeptides and ring-opening polymerization of glycosylated N-carboxyanhydride (glyco-NCA) is reviewed. The pros and cons of current developments for the synthesis of glycopolypeptide analogues and their future perspectives are also stated and discussed.

Key words: glycopolypeptide, “Click&rdquo, reaction, post-polymerization glycosylation, ring-opening polymerization
