benzoyl chloride


I saw 125 gm of benzoyl chloride for $86.09 plus shipping from sciencelab, and only $13.80 plus for 250gms from Alpha Aesar.
Is Alpha Aesar user friendly?
I hate those purchase denials.
ps. I already used tfse.

Niether of those sell "hazardous" chemicals to individuals. I'm not sure about the more mundane ones but I wouldn't count on it. Besides, the sciencelab one is a fucking rip off unless it is some super pure analytical grade.

From sciencelab.com:

We provide specialty chemicals and high purity chemicals to industry, individual professionals, life science, educational institutes, pharmaceutical, pilot plants and laboratories.

The scientist is free, and must be free to ask any question, to doubt any assertion, to seek for any evidence, to correct any errors. ... We know that the only way to avoid error is to detect it and that the only way to detect it is to be free to inquire. And we know that as long as men are free to ask what they must, free to say what they think, free to think what they will, freedom can never be lost, and science can never regress." -J.

sciencelab is having problems with getting shipments out. in their defence I'll say they have as much trouble billing as delivering. there are other outlets for benzoyl Cl at prices a little higher than alfa but easier to work with. shop, shop, shop... we all have to

Chemsavers has it at $22.10
Sounds fair to me.
This is for the

Reagent (titration) 98.5-101.5 % Benzoyl chloride, 8(6.1), UN1736, II, Ltd. Qty. (0.5L) grade.

The ACS (titration) 98-100.5 % Benzoyl chloride, 8(6.1), UN1736, II, Ltd. Qty. (0.5L)

was 20 bucks more.
The reagent, seems like a higher grade, I thought ACS was supposed to be the best.
