General description

Octaethylene glycol also known as PED-diol (n=8), is a cross linking reagent commonly used in organic synthesis.


Octaethylene glycol is used as a cross-linking reagent to produce cyclic octaethylene glycol 5-nitroisophthalate. It serves as a starting material for synthesizing heterobifunctionalized clickable oligo(ethylene glycol) linkers and supramolecular polymers.
