(Successfully) Ordering from Sigma Aldrich in the UK


Sigma Aldrich normally doesn't sell to amateurs, but they have a network of distributors which you may have more luck with.

I have placed an order with Refer Scientific of Aberdeen. No questions asked. Haven't received it yet but it has been dispatched.

Why's AcCl in a metal container?

It is in a glass bottle because it attacks many plastics.
The bottle is fragile.
So that is packed in a tin- typically surrounded by vermiculite

It has vermiculite between the glass bottle and the metal container.

There's a hint; the metal container is very big for just 500 g of acetyl chloride.

Yeah, the acetyl chloride was in a bottle of the same kind as the dimethyl carbonate. I was expecting vermiculite but it was actually some sort of absorbent pad stuff. The air in the can certainly smelled like acetic acid even though there was no visible sign of leakage.
