PCL-PEG-NHS is an amphiphilic block copolymer consisting of a hydrophilic polyethylene glycol (PEG) and a hydrophobic polycaprolactone (PCL). The PEG polymer is capped an activated carboxylic acid, succinimidyl NHS ester. The hydrophobic block PCL terminates with a hydroxyl group.

Biocompatible PEGylated copolymers with biodegradable polyester segments can be used to prepare core-shell micelles, nanoparticles and microspheres. The hydrolytic degradability of the polyester block depends on the molecular weight and the spacer between ester groups (lactide, glycotide or caprolactone). PEG-PCL with other MWs is also offered.
