​8-ArmPEG-AC (8-Arm PEG-Acrylate) is a multi-armed PEG derivative featuring acrylate functional groups at each terminal of its eight arms. This compound finds applications in radical initiator or UV light-induced polymerization processes to synthesize PEG hydrogels.

PEG hydrogels have a wide range of applications in medical devices and regenerative medicine. They are particularly useful for the controlled release of drugs, both in vitro and in vivo, due to their tunable properties such as porosity, swelling, and degradation rates. Additionally, PEG hydrogels are employed in 2D and 3D cell culture systems, providing a biomimetic environment for cell growth, proliferation, and differentiation. Furthermore, they are utilized in wound sealing and healing applications, where they can create a protective barrier and promote tissue regeneration.
