PEG Amines

Poly(ethylene glycol) chains with primary amino groups at the termini are very useful functionalized polymers.The amino end group on mPEG-NH2 is more reactive toward acylating agents than the hydroxyl group that is present on conventional PEG, and they also readily undergo reductive amination reactions. This reactivity offers a variety of
methods for attachment of other molecules to the polymer via an array of stable linkages (e.g., amide, urethane, urea, secondary amine).
