Polymer Factory's bis-MPA mPEG-COOH dendrons are multifunctional polyethylene glycol scaffolds with an exact number of carboxylic acid end groups. These materials feature a PEG core to aid water solubility and a high degree of functionality for each PEG chain. The carboxyl end groups can be used for coupling to amine-containing species via EDC/DCC coupling or NHS activation, generating highly functional materials. Our bis-MPA polyester scaffolds are biodegrable and have low cytotoxicity, making them ideal candidates for use in biological research applications.
