Application

Epoxide functionalized PEG can be covalently bonded to polymers and biopolymers by epoxide ring-opening reactions. As a surface coating, PEGylated surfaces prevent cell adhesion by entropically driven steric repulsion. For drug delivery, PEGylation increases the hydrophilicity of the drug carrier.

A novel class of hyperbranched polymers based on polyglycerol (PG) and poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) are synthesized by multibranching anionic ring opening polymerization. Multivalent cationic sites are added to these polymers by a post-amination and quarternization reactions. Blood compatibility studies using
