||Polyethylene glycol (PEG) compounds contain a polyether unit, commonly expressed as R1-(O-CH2-CH2)n-O-R2. They are generally biocompatible, non-toxic and stable in both organic and aqueous solutions, and so are extensively used in biological applications, as well as nanotechnology and materials research. Proteins with PEG chain modifications and compounds encapsulated in PEG liposomes exhibit a longer half-life in vivo than their non-PEGylated counterparts, a phenomenon known as PEG shielding. Functionalised PEG lipids and phospholipids can be used for protein-PEG conjugation.
||Poly(diethylene glycol methacrylate)-co-(oligoethylene glycol methacrylate), (PM(EO)2MA-co-OEGMA) is a comb-shaped, graft copolymer consisting of hydrophilic oligomer polyethylene glycol (PEG) chains grafted to a hydrophobic polymethacrylate backbone. In this material, the PEG chains are either diethylene glycol units or oligomer PEG (n=8-9) units. Resulting material properties can be tuned by controlling the ratio of each component. POEGMA has been suggested as a viable alternative to PEG in biological and biomaterial s. POEGMA has been reported to improve pharmacokinetic properties of protein and peptide conjugates, enhance the stability and gene silencing efficiency of siRNAs, as an anti-fouling surface for biosensors, and eliminate PEG antigenicity. In addition to use in biomolecule-polymer conjugates, PEOGMA has also seen wide spread use in tissue engineering s, such as hydrogel synthesis. Hydrazide-functionalized PM(EO)2MA-co-OEGMA can be readily used with the corresponding aldehyde-functionalized POEGMA or PM(EO)2MA-co-OEGMA for rapid gelation via reversible hydrazone bond formation. Due to the reversibility of the bond formation and the low viscosity of the precursors, resulting hydrogels can be used as injectable tissue engineering matrices, local drug delivery vehicles for small molecules, or as joint lubricants.
In addition, the physical properties of the resulting hydrogels, such as LCST, gelation rates, swelling kinetics, degradation kinetics, and mechanical properties, can all be readily controlled by solution concentration and the ratios of each solution.
