Chemical Vendors in the US?

  1. Oct 23, 2008 #1
    I am in charge of purchasing chemicals for my department in the university and I was wondering if anybody knows any good chemical vendors in the US. I know the basic ones like Sigma, Fisher, Acros, Brandnu, Spectrum, JTBaker, and GFS, but I was wondering if there are other places that have decent pricing and quality for chemicals. Thank you in advance. :smile:

    It really depends on what you need. For example , I order Alcohol from EMD. Some vendors are better than others with the quality of the chemicals and the relative pricing.

    For catalysts and ligands nothing beats STREM chemicals. They will also custom make stuff for you.

    I also order a lot of stuff from Lancaster and Alfa Aesar.
