General description

  • Polymer architecture: Dendron-functionalized PEG
  • Generation: 4
  • PEG Average Mn: 6,000
  • End group functionality: Boc-protected amine
  • No. surface groups: 32

  • Bis-MPA: 2,2-bis(hydroxymethyl)propionic acid


Bis-MPA (or 2,2-bis(methylol)propionic acid) is an aliphatic, pro-chiral molecule comprised of two hydroxyls and one carboxylic group that has been used in the synthesis of many different types of polymers. Dendrons synthesized from bis-MPA are biodegradable and have low cytotoxicity, making them well suited for use in biological research applications. These materials have been used in many applications such as signal amplification in bioassays and in drug delivery applications. PEG-core dendrimers feature excellent solubility in water and a high degree of functionality per PEG chain, making them strong candidates for advanced drug delivery systems or as targeting vessels. Additionally, the terminal amine groups can readily be used in EDC or DCC coupling reactions (after Boc deprotection) with carbonyl-containing compounds, to yield highly functionalized materials for a variety of biomedical applications.

Dendritic polymers are highly branched, globular architectures with multiple representations of functional groups. These nanoscale organic frameworks continue to fascinate researchers worldwide and are today under intensive investigation in application-driven research. A large number of potential application areas have been


Dendrimers are macromolecular polymer nanostructures containing symmetrical three-dimensional branching units resembling the branches of trees. These structures have been synthesized for specific objectives by the manipulation of six features referred to as “critical nanoscale design parameters” (CNDPs).
