Hydroxyl-PEG6-Acid, also referred to as OH-PEG6-COOH, is a PEG derivative featuring a hydroxyl group (-OH) at one end and a carboxylic acid group (-COOH) at the other end. This compound finds applications in various fields, particularly in bioconjugation, surface modification, and drug delivery. The OH group provides versatility for further functionalization, enabling the attachment of biomolecules, ligands, or targeting moieties through various chemical reactions. The COOH group also serves as a reactive site for conjugation reactions, allowing for the introduction of functional groups or the attachment of other molecules.

OH-PEG6-COOH is commonly used as a linker or spacer molecule in the synthesis of bioconjugates, where it facilitates the coupling of targeting ligands, antibodies, or drugs to nanoparticles, surfaces, or polymers. Additionally, it can be employed in the formulation of hydrogels, micelles, or nanoparticles for drug delivery applications, where its hydrophilic nature and biocompatibility contribute to the stability and biodegradability of the formulations.
