Zwitterionic Monomers Suitable for Biocompatible/Superhydrophilic Polymer Synthesis

Zwitterionic monomers contain both cationic and anionic groups in the same molecule, and are able to add superhydrophilic and/or antifouling features to materials. As a result they are often used for the purpose of surface modifications of water filters or medical equipment including stents and catherters, nanomicelles for drug delivery system (DDS). They have also been utilized to modify surfaces of biosensors to reduce measurement noise. TCI contributes to research in those areas and industries by offering various zwitterionic monomers. Our product line-up includes:

  • a phosphobetaine monomer which has a biomembrane-mimetic phosphorylcholine group
  • sulfobetaine and carboxybetaine monomers, whose polymerizable functional groups are acrylates, methacrylate esters, acrylamides or methacrylamides.

In addition to monofunctional monomers, TCI also provides a bifunctional monomer suitable for cross-linking.
