Abstract

The stereorelationship in ensembles of polysectioned objects such as apples, cut via la coupe du roi, shows similarities to the repeat units for some helical multiplexes of parallel-chain polymers [e.g., the 42-duplex of polyriboadenylic acid (acid form), and for the 63-triplex of (1→3)-β-d-glucan]. These polymers exhibit 2 nn-helical axes, and contrary to most helical multiplexes, the constituent n-strands are readily separated from each other in the excised helical repeat unit.
