Vitamin E, also called tocopherols, are a series of chiral organic molecules that vary in their degree of methylation of the phenol moiety of the chromanol ring. Tocopherols are lipid soluble anti-oxidants that protect cell membrane from oxidative damage. Methoxy PEG Vitamin E offered by Nanocs is a class of bioactive PEGs made from the PEG conjugation to α-tocopherol that can be used to for drug delivery or bioassay development.
