In chemistry a trimer is a reaction product of three identical molecules.
Chemical compounds that very easily form trimers are aliphatic isocyanates and cyanic acids as an early intermediate in a polymerisation process, see also oligomers.

 Joyce (Higgins)Easter's Publications
The localization of a G-protein to the plasma membrane, as well as its interaction with the appropriate receptor and effector, are essential for its function.
In addition, the association of a G-protein's subunits to form its trimer is required for interaction with its receptor.
Recent advances which elucidate the contributions that the post-translational modifications of the gamma subunit have on the assembly, membrane association, and function of the G-protein trimer reveal that these modifications are required for important protein-protein, in addition to membrane-protein, interactions.

 Investigations of Ultrafast Exciton Dynamics in Allophycocyanin Trimer
On the basis of this approximation, we construct a vibronic model, which describes the six chromophores in the APC trimer.
We analyze the absorption and CD spectra of the APC trimer, as well as oscillatory behaviors appearing in the pump-probe profiles and kinetics observed in the femtosecond anisotropy profile.
Photorelated biosystems like the APC trimer may achieve an efficient IC by adjusting the electronic energy gap, promoting mode and vibronic coupling constant due to the breakdown of adiabatic approximation.

Thiazyl chloride (N≡SCl) thermally derived from the preformed trimer and that made from the interaction of urethane, thionyl chloride and pyridine in benzene (Katz reagent) react somewhat differently with dibenzoyl –ethane, -ethene (E and Z) and –ethyne.
The close parallel between the action of this mixture and of thiazyl chloride [which is in equilibrium with its trimer 1 in solution] generated from its trimer is not always observed however, particularly when the substrate can react with thionyl chloride or ethyl carbamate, as the following results show.
Thus we see that differences are to be expected in the reactions of trimer 1 and Katz reagent where the substrate reacts irreversibly with thionyl chloride, for example by cyclodehydration, or with ethyl carbamate, for example by Michael-type addition.

 Best When Used By. . .. In the Pipeline:
Formaldehyde trimerizes into 1,3,5-trioxane, and acetaldehyde trimerizes into 2,4,6-trimethyl-1,3,5-trioxane (paracetaldehyde), as far as I know those are the two most common aldehyde trimers.
However, simple mixing of formaldehyde or its trimer with ammonium hydroxide followed by evaporation yields hexamethylenetetramine (hexamine, urotropin) which can be nitrated under very specific conditions (the details of which, dear reader, I shall not divulge) to produce the energetic materials known as RDX and HMX.
That reminds me of a chemistry prof's explanation of why he got into chemistry- he's sort of a hippie type, and he said, "In the 60s there were two reasons to get into chemistry- drugs and explosives.

 Chemistry Department | Brandeis University
Traditional chemistry curricula are responsible for creating the impression (in the budding inorganic or organic chemist) that "all real chemistry is done in solution." In many curricula, little more than a few lectures over four years are allocated to a discussion of the solid state.
On the other hand, the "traditional" solid-state chemist has preferred to remain aloof from organic or inorganic molecular crystals, which are generally low-melting, difficult to get pure, and are soft and readily distorted so that they tend to contain many defects and imperfections.
Further, solid-state reactions are of singular interest since many of them are highly selective, giving very pure products which may not be available from solution processes.

This suggests that the rate of dimerization is low, however, once dimers form, they react preferentially with monomers to form trimers, which in turn react with monomers to form tetrameters.
Cyclization occurs because of the proximity of the chain ends and the substantial depletion of the monomer population.
