Polymer Synthesis Facility

A University of Minnesota External Sales Organization providing custom synthesized polymers to industrial and academic institutions

Polymer synthesis continues to be a major theme in the Polymer Group at the University of Minnesota. Model homopolymers and copolymers with an array of molecular architectures are routinely produced using a wide variety of synthetic methodologies. The Polymer Synthesis Facility (PSF), an External Sales Organization at the University of Minnesota, was established to prepare these interesting samples on large scale (kilogram) and provide them to academic and industrial institutions through contract sales arrangements. The PSF received "start-up" funds from the Center for Interfacial Engineering and the University of Minnesota Materials Research and Engineering Center, and operates out of the Department of Chemistry at the University of Minnesota.

Any sale from the PSF requires the execution of an agreement between the University of Minnesota and the purchasing institution. A sample contract is available upon request.
