4-Arm PEG-SC is a multi-functional crosslinking
PEG reagent to react with amine groups, and it is one type of the 4-Arm PEG-NHS ester reagents. Among all these NHS esters we offer, SC is a
very reactive NHS ester. SC stands
for succinimidyl carbonate. The NHS ester is attached to PEG through a
carbonate linkage and upon reacting with amine, it forms a stable
carbamate bond between the PEG and the amine-containing molecule. More
details can be found at the FAQ webpage.
