PEG Surface Modification for Drug Delivery

Polyethylene glycol (PEG) is a kind of polymeric material with unique hydrophilicity and electrical neutrality. PEG coating is a crucial factor to improve the biophysical and chemical properties of nanoparticles and is widely studied. Protein adherence and macrophage removal are effectively relieved due to the existence of PEG on the particles. In our recent review, Effects of Polyethylene Glycol on the Surface of Nanoparticles for Targeted Drug Delivery, we discuss the PEGylation methods of nanoparticles and related techniques that have been used to detect the PEG coverage density and thickness on the surface of the nanoparticles in recent years. Congratulations to the team!
