In conditions, they included information that only domestic delivery is available.


It seems that is correct. On the basket you have to select the country, and although United Kingdom is in the list (which is not just the standard list of every country, it's shorter than that) it just says there's no available shipping/payment methods. If I select Poland then that changes.


I think you're right, Poland doesn't export much things on common market

Isn't Onyxmet based in Poland? I've ordered from them many times.

Yes, he is from Poland.
You can check also https://www.n2o3.com. I don't see any shipping restrictions there.
Regarding quality - I made 3 orders there. Sometimes you have to wait few weeks but quality and service is good.
The first time I bought something there the container of one of the chemicals broke in the transport. After a call they just asked if I can wait for another one. One week later I received the product.

I never ordered from these sites to be honest. I never paid attention to Onyxmet and n2o3 always seemed little too expensive for me in comparison to other sites.

I'm from Poland and i can recommend you companies such as:
http://hadronscientific.pl/en/ - cheap, useful chemicals ;

Are they still active? Because no one responded to my order the last nearly four days. Or do I have to write in polish? I wrote in english, because the website apart from polish is also in english:P

They suck in e-mail responsing, that's why I always phonecall them. I wanted to order o chlorobenzoic acid from them since december though, but they had some problems with moving the company to another place and the guy didn't care enough to find the last bits of it in stock and now, due to epidemy, you won't order much from them and my OCBA is gone :'/ . That's why, I believe they don't give any responses for emails.

Well good to know, thanks! I'll try to call them!(hope they understand english lol).
I really would like to help you out with OCBA, but mine is also gone since a few days ;) But just take Phthalimide(or make it from phthalic anhydride and ammonia) and make a Hofmann rearrangement(I used NaOH and Br2, but you can also use NaOCl) to get Anthranilic acid. And then just make a diazotation followed by a sandmeyer with CuCl - thats how I got mine :D

Let us know how that went! I tried ordering ~50 items by email and would hate to have to relay all that over the phone to someone who doesn't understand me D:

I didn't reached anyone through the phone yet, maybe they don't work on saturdays. I'll try again some other day.
Well I guess we both have the same problem, I also tried to order quite a lot :D
Just curious: When did you send your email?

I must say that the prices on reagents from the listed Polish companies are absolutely mind-blowingly reasonable. If any/all of them do EU shipping, then that is like a dream come true.

Would it be reasonable to say that only the most 'watched' of reagents such as Phenylacetone would be problematic to order, I wonder?

Oh yeah, its absolutely mindblowing how cheap stuff can be there! You won't be on the watchlist as fast, as when you are ordering stuff for example in germany(I know someone that ordered Acetone and beakers and had the police coming, absolutely ridiculous:mad: ). But still I wouldn't order stuff like Phenylacetone, or 4-Bromo-2,5-Dimethoxybenzaldehyde(offered along with 2,5-Dimethoxybenzaldehyde and a lot of other "suspicious" stuff on ebay by seller aldehydcom), because everyone knows, what this is used for, and most of these things don't have other legitimate uses ;) Also Phenylacetone can be made quite easily! Just for fun I did a small scale synthesis using freshly prepared Bromoacetone and Benzene using a two times molar excess of AlCl3. Even 2,5-Dimethoxybenzaldehyde isn't that hard to make, I'm currently working on that as my next video project :D Maybe I will instead make 2-Ethoxy-5-Methoxybenzaldehyde, but the process is exactly the same, maybe I'm also doing both ;)

That's cool - I very much look forwards to your video. :)

Thanks! I already tried the reaction out yesterday, but my addition phunnel didn't hold the CHCl3 when pouring in so the Reimer-Thiemann-Reaction rised to over 70°C evaporating off all the Chloroform and giving me a ton of tar without any isolatable product :(
And I have to wait to get new Chloroform from Mario. But in the meantime there will be a synthesis of 5-MeO-Tryptamine, if the reaction today works, like it is supposed to ;)

In regards to ordering from poland:
Today I nearly fell for a polish website, that looks like a scam website! I even placed my order, but I won't pay and cancel the order!
This Paraformaldehyde looked very cheap, even cheaper, than buying 1kg somewhere else, so I wanted to get that and sell the remaining 24kg very cheap here on SM.
But it appears, like the trusted shops Icon is completely fake, which is extremely suspicious! Also for a website, that you will find nearly no information about a visitor count of 14074463 seems way to high! That is the german website, that I found(which is polish in parts anyways, they also have a website, thats entirely in polish).
Thats the website: https://galvet.de/paraformaldehyd-25kg-transport-adr-un-2213...
After searching for them on facebook I even found someone, that claimed to have ordered for there and never got anything - thanks god(or the flying spaghetti monster), that I haven't paid yet:o

First mail was sent late March, second one late April.

Christ, finding anything on that website is terrible. :/

I'm wondering if you could use a reshiping service from Poland to order at Pol-Aura? I'm drooling all over their catalogue. Pricey, but I see all sorts of things I never knew I wanted.

I tried it, but haven't obtained any product and to be honest I don't want to use my precious anthranillic acid for making OCBA because I hate the reaction, it's complicated and annoying.
