DSPE-PEG-Ald, MW 5,000 is a phospholipid PEG polymer which can self-assemble spontaneously in water with their hydrophilic heads oriented toward the water (micelles). The polymer can be used to prepare liposome as a drug nanocarrier for administration of nutrients and therapeutic drugs, such as lipid nanoparticles in mRNA or DNA vaccines. The aldehyde is reactive with aminooxy to form a stable oxime linkage or with amine at pH < 7 to form a reversible imine bond. Reagent grade, for research purpose.
