MA(PEG)n compounds have the form Methyl-PEGn-Amine and are ideal for derivatizing surfaces and molecules with discrete numbers (n = 4, 8, 12, 24) of ethylene glycol groups. Use any amine-reactive chemistry (e.g., EDC or NHS ester) to PEGylate surfaces, proteins, or other molecules with a precise number of hydrophilic, nonimmunogenic PEG units.


  • Pure compounds of specific size ensure complete control of PEGylation
  • Straight-chain compounds with simple terminal primary amine
  • Adaptable to a variety of modification procedures

Recommended for:

  • PEGylate carboxylate or amine surfaces Add inert mass to proteins, immunogens, drug compounds and probes Improve solubility (decrease aggregation) of proteins or peptides without affecting function Protect proteins from proteolysis
