Selling out (many interesting chemicals inside)

Mixell - 18-9-2013 at 22:11

Having access to a real lab and not enough time to practice chemistry at home, I've decided to sell most of my stock of chemicals to fund my next trip to Europe.

Here is what I have:
Tellurium powder 10g- 10$.
Tantalum powder 10g- 10$.
82% Vanadium 18% aluminium alloy 50g- 10$.
Selenium powder 10g- 15$.
Cobalt metal pieces 50g- 10$.
Manganese 95.7% (rest is iron I presume) 50g- 6$.
Tungsten powder 60 mesh 20g- 5$.
Titanium shavings 50g- 10$.
Chromium powder 50g- 8$.
Nickel powder 50g- 8$.
Iron powder 300 mesh 50g- 8$.
Aluminium powder 50g (contaminated with some carbon)- 4$.
Carbon powder 50g- 4$.
High purity quartz sand 50g- 4$.

Dibutyl tin oxide 20g- 5$.
Cobalt boro neodecanoate 10g- 5$.
Ammonium paratungstate 20g- 8$.
Sodium selenite 20g- 6$.
Niobium hydroxide 20g- 5$.
Cobalt chloride hexahydrate 50g- 7$.
Potassium thiocyanate 100g- 15$.
Strontium carbonate 50g- 5$.
Barium carbonate 50g-5$.
Cryolite 50g- 4$.
Ammonium molybdate 20g- 8$
sodium metavanadate 20g- 8$.
Cesium nitrate 20g (you can turn that into chloride)- 20$
Potassium iodide 50g- 10$.
potassium bromide 50g- 10$.

Fenamic acid 2g- 5$.
Aluminon (aluminium indicator) 10g- 10$
Tetrabromobisphenol A bis(dibromopropyl ether) 20g- 5$.
Fluorescein 20g- 5$.
Diphenylamine 20g- 10$.
Malonic acid 20g- 7$.
8-hydroxoquinoline 20g- 10$.
Dimethylglyoxime 20g- 10$.
Phenolphtalein 10g- 10$.
EDTA 20g- 10$.

Salts and most organics are usually 99-99.5% pure, metals and elements are usually 99.9%-99.99%.

Calculate postage:
(Select "Small Packet")
Add 3$ (envelope).
Add 2$ for tracking (optional).

Minimum order excluding postage is 30$. I can give a discount for larger amounts (I have almost everything in up to 3-5 times the quantity stated). If you need a smaller amount- you can PM me as well.

I'll make discounts for larger orders by the following formula: 2.5^log(order) for orders over 120$.

I'm interested in:
Ammonium paratungstate 20g- 8$.
Ammonium molybdate 20g- 8$
Tantalum powder 10g- 10$
Niobium hydroxide 20g- 5$.

I will PM you this, with my shipping zip, and let me know how much to ship. Your quote site said <$6.

Mixell - 19-9-2013 at 08:31

If it says it's under 6$ (envelope included), then it should be under 6$.

Regarding the shipment of glass containers: I do have some spare ones, but not many (I'm not actually selling everything, but leaving quantities suitable for test tube experiments) I can buy some pretty cheaply though.

The problem being the postage, while the "Small Packet" option is cheap and suitable for zip-locked chemicals (not glass though), the "Parcel" option is costly:

I did just made the formula up :)

I'm currently waiting for a shipment of zip-lock bags to arrive, so I will be able to ship out only in a couple of days.

By the way, If your interested, I can add some amount of common chemicals like potassium carbonate, sodium nitrate, ammonium chloride and sulfur to the package.

It will be for free, around 20-50 (whatever is going to fit inside one 7cmx10cm zip-lock bag), one of those for every 2 things you buy.

By the way, the Ammonium molybdate is heptamolybdate:

That should be fine :)

elementcollector1 - 22-9-2013 at 12:37

Interested in tellurium, tantalum and cesium nitrate - where are you based?

Oopsy_daisy - 23-9-2013 at 05:22

Guessing by the shipping calculator adress he is based in Israel.
Additionally I may be interested in the potassium bromide, potassium iodide and the fluorescein depending on the shipping cost to Sweden.

Shipping should be pretty cheap, Just use the calculator)

Anyway, I'm still waiting for the zip-lock bags, it may take an additional week (hopefully less).

I've received a couple of emails already, I've read them all and will respond with invoice and etc when I'll be ready to ship out.

Dimethylglyoxime 20g

hyfalcon - 25-9-2013 at 03:51

I would be interested in this compound. I seem to be having trouble sourcing it in the States. Can't find anyone that will ship it to a residential neighborhood. I don't understand it either. All I want it for is as an indicator of palladium/nickel in solution. 20g will last me the rest of my life using it for that purpose.

Mixell - 25-9-2013 at 19:04

Payment is via paypal, although I'm still waiing for those bloody zip-lock bags...

And please, use the calculator. Shipment will usually be <5-7$ or <10$, depending on the weight to practically anywhere.

hyfaclcon, note that minimum order quantity is 30$ excluding shipping, as I need to mess with stuff...
You can grab an aluminium indicator or some ligands...

Also, depending on the request for different chemicals (up until I'll be ready to ship out). I might split the quantity for 1/2 the of the stated one (and half the price of-course), so that everyone could get a some.

Mixell - 25-9-2013 at 19:09

By the way, if you want anything specific you can try asking me for it, as soon as I'll get a nice list of chemicals, I'll try to score some from a local chemistry supplier.

Mixell - 4-10-2013 at 21:46

The zip-lock bags have finally arrived, I'm ready to ship-out!

Mixell - 11-10-2013 at 02:33

Tantalum out of stock.
ammonium molybdate only 10g left (half the price).
