Multi-arm PEGs - Homofunctional
JenKem Technology’s multi-arm PEG derivatives can be cross-linked into hydrogels. PEG hydrogels have a variety of applications in medical devices and regenerative medicine, and are especially of interest for controlled release of drugs, for 3D cell culture, and for wound sealing and healing.
JenKem Technology’s multi-arm PEGs are synthesized by ethoxylation of tripentaerythritol (8ARM(TP) PEG), hexaglycerol (8ARM PEG), dipentaerythritol (6ARM PEG), pentaerythritol (4ARM PEG), or glycerol (3ARM PEG). The number of ethylene oxide units in the PEG chain may not be equal for all arms. The total molecular weight reported for the JenKem multi-arm PEGs is the sum of the molecular weights of all arms.
Multi-arm star PEG products with molecular weights, branching and functional groups not listed in our online catalog may be available by custom synthesis.
JenKem Technology provides GMP grade PEG derivatives and bulk orders via custom synthesis, offering the opportunity to match customers’ special quality requirements. JenKem Technology is capable of development and synthesis of a wide range of GMP PEG derivatives starting at 200g up to 40 kg or greater batches, under ISO 9001 and ISO 13485 certified quality management system, following ICH Q7A guidelines.
