N-Boc-PEG1-bromide linker contains a bromide group and Boc-protected amino group. The PEG spacer increases the aqueous solubility of the resulting compound. Bromide (Br) is a very good leaving group for nucleophilic substitution reactions. The Boc group can be deprotected under mild acidic conditions to form the free amine, which can undergo amide coupling with carboxylic acid bearing biomolecules.
