m-PEG-SCM is a polyethylene glycol (PEG) derivative that contains a succinimidyl carboxy methyl (SCM) functional group at the end of the PEG chain. The SCM group is a reactive functional group that can bind to amine-containing molecules via a stable covalent bond.
m-PEG-SCM has been widely utilized in the development of drug delivery systems, such as liposomes, micelles, and nanoparticles. By conjugating m-PEG-SCM to the surface of these carriers, drugs can be delivered to specific cells or tissues with enhanced efficacy and reduced toxicity. Additionally, m-PEG-SCM can be used to modify the surface of biomedical devices or implants, improving their biocompatibility and reducing the immune response.
