Combating medical device fouling. In this application, it binds water and helps keep xanthan gum uniformly distributed throughout the toothpaste. Macrogol , used as a laxative, is a form of polyethylene glycol. Factors affecting the suitability of superplasticiser-amended cement for the encapsulation of radioactive waste. However, studies of clinical safety are generally based on adults, not children. Vadala, R.

Factors affecting the suitability of superplasticiser-amended cement for the encapsulation of radioactive waste. Lower-molecular-weight PEGs are also available as purer oligomers, referred to as monodisperse, uniform, or discrete. While PEG and PEO with different molecular weights find use in different applications, and have different physical properties e. They are used commercially in numerous applications, including as surfactants , in foods, in cosmetics , in pharmaceutics, in biomedicine , as dispersing agents, as solvents, in ointments , in suppository bases, as tablet excipients , and as laxatives. These properties make PEG one of the most useful molecules for applying osmotic pressure in biochemistry and biomembranes experiments, in particular when using the osmotic stress technique. Meth acrylated poly ethylene glycol s as precursors for rheology modifiers, superplasticizers and electrolyte membranes: a review.
Polymer chain length depends on the ratio of reactants.
PEG is used as a binder in the preparation of technical ceramics. Thompson, M. Acta Biomaterialia , 10 1 , Macromolecules , 40 7 , Journal of Applied Polymer Science , 1 ,
