Hydroxy-PEG-Tos, also known as hydroxyl-terminated polyethylene glycol tosylate, is a functionalized polymer that has gained significant attention in the pharmaceutical industry. This class of compounds features a hydroxyl group and a tosylate functional group, which are commonly used in drug research and development.
Hydroxy-PEG-Tos can be utilized to modify the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of a drug candidate, which can improve its efficacy and safety. This functionalized polymer can also be used to enhance the solubility and bioavailability of poorly soluble drugs. Furthermore, hydroxy-PEG-Tos can be used to target specific tissues and organs by conjugating with targeting ligands.
