U.S. based suppliers that will sell to individuals?


I spend way too much time trying to figure out how to source chemicals here in the U.S., and basically always end up trying to either extract something from something on Amazon or just buying it on eBay.

Are there any U.S. based suppliers on the forum? Not looking for anything particularly exotic, just want a single unified place I can always come back to in case I need something.




Please check out my latest video: Synthesizing Nitrobenzene, and the last one:
Making Nitric Acid.

Take a look into the wiki of SM, it has a wonderful list of suppliers somewhere there.

First I check amazon and ebay
if I can't find it there, I check www.elementalscientific.net (terrible customer service during COVID-19) and www.consolidated-chemical.com and www.manofohm.com
if i still can't find it, and can't cheaply make it from something else in good yields, www.chemsavers.com is the last resort

I've had good luck with Consolidated Chemical and Chemsavers. The latter will charge you an additional shipping and handling fee for certain items but they're not being greedy. They're essentially a reseller and their supplier (mostly Beantown Chemical) won't ship many chemicals to residential addresses.

I have good experience with https://www.artcraftchemicals.com/
It is in New York, geared towards photography and old processes. They have many chemicals, which also are useful for general home chemistry.

Forgot about www.dudadiesel.com. A very good source of common chemicals such as sulfuric acid, methanol, sodium hydroxide, etc, with cheap industrial prices.

Wow, some of these sources arent in the wiki and theyre hugely beneficial to me. Particularly, I would hate to have to make triethylamine.

Carolina biological is a US source..

American elements web pages state theyll ship to residential adresses.

I've never ordered from either though. I had a good experience with chemsavers.
