General description

8arm PEG Acrylate. Crosslinks into hydrogels. Used in vinyl polymerization or co-polymerization. 8ARM(TP)-PEG with tripentaerythritol core has a lower polydispersity and higher molecular weight accuracy compared with the generic 8ARM-PEG with a hexaglycerin core.


Applications may include: bioconjugation, drug delivery, PEG hydrogel, crosslinker, and surface functionalization
