I'd be interested in propylene carbonate. Its not especially hazardous but seems not to be available at distributors who will sell to individuals. There are probably a few others who might be interested as well.

I have seen several recommendations that propylene carbonate be adopted as an environmentally friendly replacement for other solvents. It is also used in Cover Girl mascara. So I would gather it is pretty innocuous as organic solvents go.

What can I say, I'm extremely impressed by Tom's service. He goes out of his way to send you dangerous, hard to find things shipped properly and legally. Name brand reagents from Acros Organics and Alfa Aesar. UPS could play football with the box and it wouldn't break.

The other option is to buy from Polish eBay and get who knows what thrown into a normal box that might leak and/or gets seized by customs.

I would also be interested in p–dimethylaminobenzaldehyde if you do decide to stock it.

And BTW that is really awesome that you are probing your customer base for what to stock, including hard to find stuff. Hope we can keep you profitable!

I do have the p-dimethylaminobenzaldehyde in 100 g size available for special order( CHSO-23-100). Overtime, I will review the interest in certain special order chemicals and, if there has been enough demand for it, I may decide to stock a little of it. It depends on demand, price, my availability, etc.

I, too, hope I can continue to perform this service and be profitable. (If it were an easy profit, everyone would be doing it.)

Thanks for your support.

Tom

If I buy special order chemicals (phosphorous tribromide) and non-special order chemicals (acetyl chloride, phenol, and vanadium pentoxide), can they be shipped together in the same exemption pack to save on shipping?



As below, so above.

Those four are not compatible and must be shipped separately. So I'm afraid that we can't combine and save $$. Sometimes it works out, other times it doesn't.
