These multifunctional polyethylene glycols are PEG-based chains that are decorated with dendron wedges of different generations and with exact number of hydroxyl, acetylene, carboxylic, boc-amine and azide groups. Great for biomedical applications as well as scaffolds for hydrogels. Includes mPEGs which is built from a monofunctional PEG core yielding a linear polymer with a dendritic wedge in the end. Perfect for self assembly and micelle formation.
The cost-efficient alternative to dendronised PEGs. Same general structure as the dendritic PEGs, yet the dendritic wedges are assembled randomly yielding the same amount of functional groups but not the same level of structural control. Suitable for more industrial applications.
