Just noticed a great supplier of methanol isn't listed anywhere. Racing Go-karts all run on methanol so just find your local Kart shop and they will sell it very cheap by the gallon. Also the WKA (World Karting Association) has strict rules on fuel so you can expect it to be pure methanol.

Beryl (of which emerald and aquamarine are specifically coloured varieties) is harmless. It is hard and insoluble, and hence has a negligible bioavailability.

On the other hand, many extremely nasty substances are readily available from mineralogy suppliers. (I keep meaning to add an article on geological specimens as a source of chemicals to my site.)

A prime example is arsenopyrite, which is Iron Arsenic Sulphide (FeAsS). It is available on eBay almost constantly. At present I can see six specimens available in the UK, and 13 in the US. (Plus many more in eBay shops.)

Yes, this has been on my mind the last few days as well, I have a relatively short list of minerals with potentially interesting elements in them.

Doing this would make us like the alchemists of old!:)

Good to hear that beryl is not so bad, the mineral kit I saw it in included tests for scratching all the rocks in there, and the idea of powdering a beryllium mineral surprised me.

Not very much , the trick is getting it out , I suppose one could
repeatedly drill into it immersed in a solvent to leach the SOCl2,
it's a piss poor way to make nerve gas. SOCl2 is consumed which
means only new batteries can be a source.

I just tried to get to the "readily available chemicals" page only to find that
the webpage is unavailable :( Could someone else try just to make sure this
isn't just me. Fortunately, it is backed up on the Internet Wayback Machine:

Rock / mineral collections (collection) are almost foundational to OTC sources of many things simply not available in an industrial application that the consumer can buy. ....Really good sources for pure elements like arsenic.

i am a fish,
dunno if this has been mentioned yet cause i dont feel like reading through all the squabling (judging by the first page), but the nitric acid links are no longer viable, maybe add trinitylab's site for this one. there were a couple other chems that have been pulled from the respective suppliers. I'll post again when i come across them

While poking around the web, I found that cigar suppliers sell propylene glycol
solutions (typically 50% concentration) for use in humidors:

http://www.tinderbox.com/Tinderbox-com-Propylene-Glycol-Solu...
http://www.centralchef.com/storefrontprofiles/processfeed.as...

According to the blurb of the latter supplier, their product is rather pure.

I found aerosol cans of a welding anti-spatter product at home depot that appears to be mostly dichloromethane. The liquid is yellow-brown in color and leaves an oily residue but it distills very easily (under reflux of course) to pure DCM, which came over at 36°C at my altitude.

Not all chemicals are bad. Without chemicals such as hydrogen and oxygen, for example, there would be no way to make water, a vital ingredient in beer.

Care to enlighten us as to the name of this magic compound?

I don't recall, but it was a Lincoln Electric product and was called something like anti-spatter spray. It was in 16oz cans for something like $6.

Well, I found the list at Hyperdeath only a few days ago and already it's been extremely helpful in finding a few much needed but hard to find chemicals, so: 'well done that man' :D.

And don't take any notice of idiotic detractors like LeonardNimoy, this compendium is really useful and several companies listed will benefit from it, as supplying chemicals, even to 'spotty Herberts', within the law can be highly lucrative. I don't believe for one minute that being published here will lead to some companies to clam up. Companies that don't want to deal with individuals have perfectly other ways to weed out unwanted/suspect custom. To hell with them, I say...

And one comment: the site listed for Rayco doesn't seem to exist anymore...

Has anyone heard of this company?

http://www.inoxia.co.uk/content/info/about.aspx

It seems to be aimed at the pyro user largely...lots of metal oxides and such.

Never used it, but over at APC they have a supplier review section and it was listed there.
