Application

Carboxylic acid-poly(ethylene glycol)-b-poly(D,L lactide) is a functionalized, amphiphilic, diblock copolymer composed of a hydrophilic PEG block and a hydrophobic PLA block. These biodegradable, biocompatible polymers can self-assemble to form nanoparticles, such as micelles and polymersomes, in both aqueous and non-aqueous media. Due to these properties, these polymers are widely used in polymeric nanoparticle formulation to achieve controlled and targeted delivery of therapeutic agents (e.g. APIs, genetic material, peptides, vaccines, and antibiotics). The carboxylic acid functional group on the PEG chain enables rapid and facile surface functionalization, allowing for these materials to be used in applications such as targeted drug delivery.

Due to their small particle size and large and modifiable surface, nanoparticles have unique advantages compared with other drug carriers. As a research focus in recent years, polyethylene glycol-polylactic acid (PEG-PLA) block copolymer and its end-group derivative nanoparticles can enhance

Injectable nanoparticulate carriers have important potential applications such as site-specific drug delivery or medical imaging. Conventional carriers, however, cannot generally be used because they are eliminated by the reticulo-endothelial system within seconds or minutes after intravenous injection. To address these
