Description

4-Arm PEG-GAS is a multiarm PEG derivative with succinimidyl NHS ester at each terminal of the four arms connected to one pentaerythritol core. PEG-GAS (GAS: GlutarAmide Succinimidyl ester) is one type of PEG-NHS reagents. There is a C4 hydrocarbon amide linkage between PEG and NHS ester. More details can be found at the FAQ webpage.

Properties

Molecular weight: 4-Arm PEG MW refers to the MW of the entire PEG molecule. The MW of each arm is 1/4 of the MW indicated in the product name. MW of PEG was measured by MALDI-MS or GPC. PDI (polydispersity index) of our 4-Arm PEG is 1.02-1.05 with very narrow MW distribution. The number of repeating ethylene oxide units (CH2CH2O) or the degree of polymerization is calculated dividing the PEG MW by 44 (44 is the molecular mass of one repeating unit).

Solubility: Soluble in water and aqueous buffer, chloroform, methylene chloride, DMF, DMSO, and less soluble in alcohol, toluene. Not soluble in ether.

Density: PEG density is approximately 1.125 g/mL.

Physical form: PEG products generally appear as white or off-white powder, and for very low MW 4-Arm PEG such as MW 2k, it may appear as wax-like, semi-solid material due to the low MW and the type of functional groups.

Storage condition: PEG product shall be stored in the original form as received in a freezer at -20C or lower for long term storage. Stock solution of PEG reagents that do not contain oxygen or moisture sensitive functional groups may be temporarily stored in a refrigerator or ambient temperature for multiple days. Stock solution should avoid repeated freeze-and-thaw cycles. See Documents section for detailed storage and handling conditions.

Q: What are the differences among your PEG NHS ester products?
A: We offer a variety of PEG acid and PEG NHS ester. These NHS esters react with primary and secondary amine to form a stable amide linkage. This reaction may be carried out in an organic solution with an organic base or may be carried out in an aqueous solution at or around neutral pH or slightly acidic or basic. To PEGylate proteins or nanoparticles, it often requires a large excess of PEG NHS esters due to the competitive hydrolysis reaction in an aqueous solution. Stability of NHS esters is compared by their hydrolysis half-life (T1/2). To mitigate the competitive hydrolysis reaction, organic solvents such as amine-free, anhydrous DMF and DMSO may be used in combination with an aqueous buffer solution.

Type A: SCMMethylene (CH2) linkage between PEG and NHS esterHighly reactiveHydrolysis half-life: less than five minutes. It often requires the use of a large excess of PEG reagents.
Type B: SGC4 aliphatic ester linkage between PEG and NHS esterVery reactiveHydrolysis half-life: around 20 minutes.
Type C: SSC3 aliphatic ester linkage between PEG and NHS esterVery reactiveHydrolysis half-life: around 10 minutes.
Type D: GASC4 aliphatic amide linkage between PEG and NHS esterVery reactiveHydrolysis half-life: around 20 minutes.
Type E: SASC3 aliphatic amide linkage between PEG and NHS esterVery reactiveHydrolysis half-life: around 10 minutes.
SCM: Succinimidyl Carboxyl Methyl ester; SG: Succinimidyl Glutarate ester; SS: Succinimidyl Succinate ester; GAS: GlutarAmide Succinimidyl ester; SAS: SuccinAmide Succinimidyl ester. Note: hydrolysis half-life depends on pH, temperature and other factors of the testing conditions.
