Succinylation will yield a dimer, monovalent forms have been produced by
using a covalent derivatization with an active-site target.
    This was well worked out in the early 70's.  Hit MEDLINE and search
under author names John Wang and Bruce Cunningham; I think it was published
in the Journal of Biological Chemistry.

If you don't want functional monomer, you can of course denature, but I
assume that is not what you want.
