PEG (Vinylsulfone)2


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


PEG (Vinylsulfone)2 reagent with superior quality specification of ≥ 90% Substitution.

PEG (Vinylsulfone)2 (diVinylsulfone PEG) from JenKem Technology is a thiol reactive homobifunctional PEG for sulhydryl pegylation at high pH. Homobifunctional PEG derivatives from JenKem Technology have numerous applications as crosslinkers for PEGylation of proteins and peptides, nanoparticle and surface modifications. Conjugation with homobifunctional PEGs ensures an increased drug load compared to pegylation with linear PEGs. JenKem Technology offers PEG (Vinylsulfone)2 with MW 3,500 Da (VS-PEG3500-VS) and MW 5,000 Da (VS-PEG5000-VS), in 1g and 5g packing sizes.

Different MW of PEG diVinylsulfone 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 PEGs are also available upon request. Please contact us for special bulk pricing.
