Polymer Factory's bis-MPA Thiol-NHBOC dendrons are monodisperse, multifunctional scaffolds with 1 thiol focal point and an exact number of protected amine surface groups. After deprotection, the amine functional surface groups can be used for EDC/DCC coupling or coupling to NHS esters, while the thiol focal point can be further conjugated using thiol-ene click, thiol-yne or thio-Michael addition to produce highly functional materials. Our bis-MPA polyester scaffolds are biodegrable and have low cytotoxicity, making them ideal candidates for use in biological research applications.
