Description

General description

Poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) is a non-ionic hydrophilic polymer and is available in different molecular weights. It either exists in the form of a linear or branched structure. It aids in the purification and crystal growth of proteins and nucleic acids. PEG along with dextran is used to achieve an aqueous polymer two-phase system, which is essential for the purification of biological materials. It permits cell fusion through its interaction with the cell membrane.

Application

Poly(ethylene glycol) has been used in the production of monoclonal antibodies.
