PEG (Acrylate)2


PEG products with additional MW may be made to order, please contact us for details


PEG diAcrylate or PEG (Acrylate)2 reagent with superior quality specification of ≥95% Substitution.

PEG (Acrylate)2 from JenKem Technology (diAcrylate PEG) is a homobifunctional PEG employed for pegylation of sulfhydryl / thiol containing molecules. Acrylates are usually employed for vinyl polymerization or co-polymerization.  JenKem Technology’s homobifunctional PEG derivatives have numerous applications as crosslinkers, including for PEGylation of proteins and peptides, nanoparticle and surface modifications. Conjugation with homobifunctional PEGs provides an increased drug load compared to pegylation using linear PEGs. JenKem Technology offers PEG (Acrylate)2 with MW 2,000 Da (ACLT-PEG2000-ACLT), MW 3,500 Da (ACLT-PEG3500-ACLT), MW 5,000 Da  (ACLT-PEG5000-ACLT), and MW 7,500 Da (ACLT-PEG7500-ACLT), in 1g and 5g packing sizes; and ACLT-PEG35K-ACLT in 50g pack size.

Different MW of  PEG diAcrylate may be available by custom synthesis, please email us at for details on custom PEGs. JenKem Technology provides repackaging services for an additional fee, please contact us if you require a different package size than our catalog selection.

Bulk PEGs and GMP grade PEGs are made-to-order. Please contact us for bulk pricing.
