- Methoxy poly(ethylene glycol)-b-Poly(lactide-co-glycolide) carboxylic acid (mPEG-PLGA-COOH) is a biodegradable a biodegradable amphiphilic block copolymers (ABCs) with terminated -COOH with PLGA block for drug drug conjugation. PEG is the hydrophilic part and PLGA is the hydrophobic part.
- Amphiphilic block copolymers (ABC) consist two chemically different homopolymer blocks. One of the block is hydrophilic and the other one is hydrophobic. These macromolecules have the properties to self-assemble into micelles when dissolved in an aqueous media.
