Acrylate-PEG5-t-butyl ester CAS:1435943-66-0 is a small molecule that is composed of several functional groups. The acrylate group is a type of unsaturated organic compound that contains a double bond between carbon and oxygen atoms. The PEG5 (polyethylene glycol 5) group is a type of polymer that contains a chain of repeating ethylene glycol units. The t-butyl group is an alkyl group that contains four carbon atoms and is commonly used as a protecting group for reactive functional groups.
The combination of these functional groups in Acrylate-PEG5-t-butyl ester is designed to create a molecule that can be used to link other molecules together in a controlled manner. The acrylate group, for example, can be used to react with other molecules containing a reactive group such as a thiol or amine. The PEG5 group can help to improve the solubility and stability of the molecule in solution. The t-butyl group can be removed under specific conditions to reveal the reactive group for further chemical reactions.
