PolyVivo AK30 PEG-PLGA water solubility
Recent product PolyVivo AK30 (mPEG-PLGA 5000-4000Da) is water soluble to form a cloudy solution with 1% w/v. Upon shaking a gentle foam is easily formed (see picture) indicating surfactant behavior of this material. This product is a good research compliment to our current water soluble product AK09 (mPEG-P(DL)La 2000-2200) due to their varying block lengths and compositions.
