Alfa Aeser


Does anyone have experience ordering from them? Would they sell anhydrous aluminum chloride to an individual?

No, I haven't bought from them before, a since you failed to provide a link to the product in question, I'm not sure if this is cheaper, but it's certainly not expensive either:http://www.ebay.com/itm/ALUMINIUM-CHLORIDE-ANHYDROUS-AlCl3-1...
[EDIT] BTW, that eBay seller has an excellent selection of useful reagents for a good price.

I think Alfa Aesar is the same as Sigma Aldrich in the fact that they won't sell anything to individuals, they don't want to deal with it.

This EBay seller has very good products! I can personally vouch for their quality. However, for those of us in the US, the shipping can be a bit slow. I second Zyklonb's suggestion of looking at his product list.

Sorry about not providing a link. I'd rather not order something from Poland, so I'll continue my search.

Alfa Aesar, along with all the other major suppliers, does not deal with individuals. You must be a business (and no, making your own LLC company with a PO box almost certainly won't work either). eBay is a wonderful source for just about everything you'd need; sometimes you just have to be patient and keep an eye out for certain things.

I have ordered many many times from that polish seller (chemdreamlandeu) and excellent is all I can say. Well packed, properly labelled and ships quick enough. I don't try ordering liquids though just because it's quite the trip, but for solid chemicals? No problem!

I have bought form this seller before and they are very good. Shipping is pretty fast when compared to other foreign sellers.
