Acrylate-PEG-NH2, MW 5K is a highly functional polyethylene glycol (PEG) derivative that features both an acrylate group and a primary amine (NH2) group. The acrylate group allows for covalent attachment to various substrates via free-radical polymerization, while the amine group facilitates conjugation to biomolecules, such as proteins and peptides, through established amide bond-forming reactions.
This dual-functionality positions Acrylate-PEG-NH2, MW 5K as an invaluable reagent in pharmaceutical research and development. Its applications include drug delivery systems, hydrogel networks, and bioconjugation strategies. By incorporating Acrylate-PEG-NH2, MW 5K into these systems, researchers can improve solubility, biocompatibility, and stability of therapeutics, while minimizing immunogenicity.
