In Development

We have various programs and products in all stages of development from concept to manufacturing. Products not yet ready for full-scale production may be available in research quantities under Non Disclosure Agreements (NDA) and/or Materials Transfer Agreements (MTA).

In addition, we are always open to partnership opportunities with other groups to advance the development of our ongoing programs.

Some of our non-proprietary ongoing work is detailed below.

R&D Products and Materials In Development

Ionomers / PEM Membranes

Tetramer is currently developing a variety of custom ionomers, proton exchange membranes (PEMs) and other specialty membranes. Applications include hydrogen fuel cells, water vapor transport, electrolyzers, and solar fuels generators.

Advantages of Tetramer ionomers include tailorable properties (backbone architecture, IEC, molecular weight, water uptake/swell, H2 and O2 permeability) as well as cost and resistance to chemical degradation. Tetramer expertise covers custom ionomer design and synthesis, joint development and collaboration (including national laboratories, academic institutions and leading commercial device manufacturers), scale-up, membrane configuration design and casting and manufacturing process cost analysis.

Size Standard Calibration Particles

Funded by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), Tetramer developed a commercial scale emulsion polymerization process to produce 100 nm and sub-100 nm diameter latex polystyrene particles, with a total population size variation of less than 2 nm.  NIST’s Engineering Physics Division of the Physical Measurement Laboratory is interested in using these latexes as sizing standards to provide traceability for critical measurement instrumentation, enabling new manufacturing technologies. In particular, the standards will be helpful to calibrate microscopy equipment, enabling previously unknown reliability across a variety of instruments. Dynamic light scattering particle size analysis and electron microscopy are used to validate the size and monodispersity of nanoparticles.
