General description

Poly(ethylene glycol)diacrylate (PEGDA) is a long chain, hydrophilic and crosslinking monomer widelyused in tissue engineering.

Application

PEGDA is widely used as a scaffolding material for tissue engineering applications due to its biocompatibility and inherent resistance to protein adhesion.

It can be used as an alloying agent to prepare polymer membranes for gas separation applications. For example, an alloyed poly(Ether Block Amide)/ PEGDA membrane can be used for the separation of CO2/H2.

It can also be used as aprecursor to fabricate polymer electrolyte membranes(PEMs) for flexible Li-ionbatteries. The addition of PEGDA enhances the ionic conductivity, thermal stability,and mechanical toughness of PEMs.

Features and Benefits

  • Highly hydrophilic
  • Non-toxic
  • Biocompatible
  • Non-immunogenic

2D and 3D scaffold patterning techniques can be applied in the presence of cells using poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG)-based hydrogels. These methods can be applied to any optically transparent, photoactive substrate.

In the past two decades, tissue engineering and regenerative medicine have become important interdisciplinary fields that span biology, chemistry, engineering, and medicine.

Progress in biotechnology fields such as tissue engineering and drug delivery is accompanied by an increasing demand for diverse functional biomaterials. One class of biomaterials that has been the subject of intense research interest is hydrogels, because they closely mimic the natural environment of cells, both chemically and physically and therefore can be used as support to grow cells. This article specifically discusses poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) hydrogels, which are good for biological applications because they do not generally elicit an immune response. PEGs offer a readily available, easy to modify polymer for widespread use in hydrogel fabrication, including 2D and 3D scaffold for tissue culture. The degradable linkages also enable a variety of applications for release of therapeutic agents.

Devising biomaterial scaffolds that are capable of recapitulating critical aspects of the complex extracellular nature of living tissues in a threedimensional (3D) fashion is a challenging requirement in the field of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine.
