A binary copolymer chain is treated theoretically in the approximation of a first order Markov process. The microstructure of the chain is described in terms of the mole fraction of the dilute monomer and an intermonomer correlation coefficient. The resulting equation for the sequence distribution shows some symmetry in both parameters. It thus offers the possibility to separate influences of copolymer composition on one hand and the distribution of the monomer run lengths along the chain on the other hand. The connection of this formalism to n.m.r, dyad analysis and the classical copolymerization parameters is shown.
