General description

NovaSyn TG bromo resin is a composite of low cross-linked polystyrene and 3000-4000 M.W. polyethylene glycol [1,2,3], in which the ends of the PEG chains have been bromo functionalized. The 130 μm beads have a narrow size distribution, high diffusion rates and excellent swelling properties across a wide range of solvents from toluene to water, making them ideally suited to the synthesis of serial and parallel libraries by organic solid phase synthesis. This support may be used for the immobilization of alcohols, carboxylic acids, phenols and thiols, or as base support for other linkers [4,5]. Loading of this support can be carried out using the same methods as those previously described for Merrifield resin.
