Using a strand exchange mechanism we have prepared, by DNA templated chemistry, two 10-mers with defined and tunable monomer sequences. An optimized reaction protocol achieves 85% coupling yield per step, demonstrating that DNA-templated chemistry is a powerful tool for the synthesis of macromolecules with full sequence control.
