Si vous demeurez en France, pourquoi vous n'écrivez pas votre demande en bon français?

Because, if you write in French, lots of people won't understand you and will ask what are you on about.

To speak french doesn't imply to live in France!
I think he looks for chemists living in France and maybe if possible speaking french :)

I speak french, but I'm from Belgium...although Lille/Rijsel is not far away from belgian frontier :)

Bien le bonjour de vos amis belges!

Sparky, isn't our good friend away/ in progress with his relocation? I remember him saying he won't be checking in for a bit.

Hehe I guess I'm the guy you are talking about..
Sorry for the late reply, I am indeed moving and had only intermettent internet acces until recently.

I'm now living in Strasbourg, north east of France, and use to have a home lab down in the south. The lab is packed into boxes waiting for the day where I can set it up again, not in the near futur I'm afraid...

But I've got tons of chemistry to do at work, only frustating part is that I can't really discuss it publicly of course, so no pictures or reports!

I'm glad to see more and more french chemist getting more involved in their passion, there's never enough :) For a while I thought I was the only one on this forum! :)

I know at least 2 members here who live in France. I used to live in France too for years.

Problem is, even ammonia water and acetone starts dissapearing from the shelves; trying to buy these may raise the eyebrows. Not good for the home chemist.
And I must add that ammonia water ("alkali" as it's called there) is an "hystorical" product for home use in France along with "eau de Javel".

Still, there's a french chemistry forum, with far less "serious" members who you may meet in person since most of them actually are from France: http://scienceamusante.net/forum/chimie.php

That is a poor website :(, as for things start dissapearing, that is incorrect, everything is still available!

I didn't say these are not available anymore; it's just that it STARTS getting more difficult to get these.

Hi everyone ^_^ I've been away for quite a long time... I only discovered this post today!

I'm not from France but close to it too... Brussels! (Belgium)

At the opposite of France where everything is forbidden, there are wonderful shops here where you can buy sodium azide, 70% HNO3, nitroethane and the like ;)

PS: Hello to PhilouZ, Blind and pbmineral who I already know :P Nice to meet you for all the other fellows ;)

What about an IRL meeting with the cops, interpol and the like ? :P

Can you also buy iodine, hydriodic acid, hydrobromic acid, red and white phosphorus, nitric and sulfuric acids, toluene, benzaldehyde, diethyl ether, isopropanol, safrole, and acetic anhydride at those scientific-supplies shops in Belgium?

iodine : yes
hydriodic acid : maybe, should ask
hydrobromic acid : idem
phosphorous : nope
nitric acid 40% and 70% : no problem
sulfuric acid 36% and 96% : no problem
toluene : yes
benzaldehyde : yes
diethyl ether : yes, even in pharmacy (usualy when I need something there I first ask for ether so they are too drunk to think about anything)
isopropanol : yes, pharmacy too but expensive
safrole : shouldn't try that, it's forbidden in belgium
acetic anhydride : they used to but not anymore

Actually you can find almost anything as long as it's not a drug precursor. They do not mind about pyro stuff... so you can buy potassium chlorate for 2eur/kg without any problem...
