Suppliers List

Ubya - 31-10-2018 at 14:48

I Thought it would be a good idea to make a list of suppliers because everyone of us uses different websites to buy their chemicals and equipment, but it doesn’t exist a seller that is best for everything, maybe a supplier is good for US citizens but not for EU or Australia, same the other way around. By making a list of all the good suppliers we know of and putting a brief description of their service and products with pros and cons and other general informations, i hope everybody will benefit by making their search for materials easier or better, by spending less, or by finding someone that could sell them something that nobody else would etc.

Deschem
A Chinese seller that offers a wide range of of common glassware equipment for a low price. Mostly 24/40 and 24/29 glassware, plus many other lab essentials. Ships worldwide for free

Nanshinglass
A Chinese seller specialized in large volume glassware, but also sells common glassware. Cheap prices and free shipping worldwide

Onyxmet
A Polish seller with a wide range of organic and inorganic compounds plus pure elements in different forms. Purity of compounds is not always mentioned, the range is 98-99,9%. Shipping costs depend on your location and the minimum order (without shipping) is 15 USD.

Rathburn
Scottish company, sells quite a long list of HPLC and glass-distilled grade solvents. Not an online shop, a phone call or an email is necessary to place an order

LiMac science
Company based in Latvia, has a really big catalog of organic and inorganic compounds, can even buy in bulk. Ships worldwide, shipping costs depend on location.

United Nuclear
US company, sells small amounts of common chemicals, a few pieces of glassware and many other different things (meteorites, xray tubes, magnets, lasers, etc), but famous for selling uranium metal and uranium ore samples. Prices are pretty high relative to other sources and many items are USA only shipping.



If you think something should be added/removed/corrected feel free to tell me, the list will expand with time, so if you want to recommend a store just write about it here.

There's already a page for this on the SM wiki: http://www.sciencemadness.org/smwiki/index.php/Lab_suppliers

I think it'd be better to update that

you are right.
i'm sorry i checked the forum but not the wiki.
i'll delete this thread after the wiki is updated with the new info we can write here

I have made some extensive changes to this page over the past couple of hours. I've: reorganised by geography, fixed formatting, removed obsolete entry (oxford chemserve anyone?), and added all of the suppliers I use frequently.

Nothing from Oz here. It might be a project (as if I needed another one just at the moment.)

Great Job DavidJR, it's much better now

In Europe there is restauro online ( from Italy) , they sell chemicals for the lab among other things.

I have ordered about 300 E of products from them. You will most likely find all that you need on their shop. Shipping is fast.

Can't seem to find a good Canadian supplier :(
Ammoniumnitrateforsale.com sells ammonium nitrate at bulk quantities.
(Keep in mind US only allow for 40lb of ammonium nitrate to be stored at one place with a PAL license)

Optimum - 4-8-2019 at 14:48

Hello,

to purchase edible compounds such as supplements and reagents should i use this list? or should i try to get them in other places?

from that list which ones have the best quality?

Some oceania entries for wiki:
Auschems.com(not auschem. They don't sell to public) is good for inorganic reagents and some glassware.


Sciencesupply.com.au is great for glassware, tad expensive compared to overseas and even some other AU's suppliers but still IMO the best au supplier.

Thanks for this! I hadn't found Auschems.

can someone elaborate?

Thanks

Texium (zts16) - 10-11-2019 at 09:57

Nobody can elaborate until YOU elaborate on what it is you're looking for. "Supplements and reagents" is so vague that the only reasonable answer to your question is a soft "Maybe?" Either explain specifically what you are looking for, or go search the websites of the suppliers and see if they sell what you want. I don't know what you want from us.

Pretty sure that by definition a reagent isnt an edible.

Mesa - 14-11-2019 at 04:46

Speaking of edibles... I found a hidden gem a few months ago www.melbournefooddepot.com.

Lots of "food grade" (still relatively pure) compounds including organic acids(propionic, pyruvic etc) inorganic reagents(NH4HCO3 etc) and even potential PTC catalyst precursors

List of websites that sell organic compounds to amateurs

www.chemsavers.com (not 100% sure if website ship to residential addresses, but they have amazon and ebay accounts that sell their benign chemicals to anyone)

www.dudadiesel.com (mostly common acids, bases, solvents, but also a couple common organic compounds, e.g. formic acid)

also start off by doing a search on ebay and amazon for what you are looking for.

any others to add?

I don't suppose you could find a different way to store your bookmarks Cou? Or at the very least, write some comment so people know what it is that they are about to click on.

Redoka Chemicals in the UK seem to be pretty good for basic solvents, DCM, Methanol, Toluene, Xylene etc. - the prices aren't bad, and the shipping is quick and reasonable. They have an eBay store as well.
