General description

Poly(ethylene glycol) methyl ether methacrylate (PEGMA) is a nonlinear analog of polyethylene glycol (PEG). It is a biocompatible homopolymer with a brush type structure that is mainly used to provide a PEG modified surface.

Application

PEGMA may be used in the preparation of a polyelectrolytic solution for the development of lithium ion batteries. It can be photopolymerized to form a zwitterionic monomer which can be coated on steel surfaces for bio-fouling based applications.

Continuous Flow Manufacturing for Monomer Synthesis

The manufacture of monomers for use in ophthalmic applications is driven by the need for higher purity, improved reliability of manufacturing supply, but ultimately by the need for the increased comfort, convenience, and safety of contact lens wearers. Daily wear contact lenses have the potential to fill this need for many customers; however, their widespread use is constrained by higher costs compared to weekly- or monthly-based lenses. New approaches that improve cost structure and result in higher quality raw materials are needed to help make contact lenses more affordable and accelerate growth of the contact lens market.
