The Bis(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate can be leached from flexible PVC products (vinyl gloves, tubing, shower curtains)

Looking at their website it seems they have been taken over by a Polish company. I wonder if orders would come direct from Poland or from Ireland as importing chems from Europe is always a concern to me ?

I don't know. I get them from a local supplier with the chemicals in stock. They also supply chemicals from Acros, Alfa and Carl Roth. That + they are world class when it comes to producing reference standards for GC. ;)

Mewrox99, KBrO3 is not that special. It is, together with KIO3, the easiest halate to be made. I made a lot of this stuff by electrolysis of KBr. It is easier to make this, than making KClO3, because graphite rods can be used without too much problem, while making KClO3 gives a lot of crap with carbon rods.

Those are nice chems! Especially the POCl3, shame is such a small amount.

I haven't bought anything special lately. This is because I have plenty of chems and I am spending mostly on glasware (about 150 EUR the last 2 months and a lab vacuum pump (resistant to all gasses) for 150 EUR. The latest special chems I obtained were 75 gram of NH4ReO4, 10mL (CF3CO)2O and 1 g 2,2-biquinoline.
I am soon to recieve 500mL of hexanes, 500mL of toluene, 1 L of ether (the 400mL I started with more than 2 years ago is empty) and 250g of Mg turnings for Grignard.

Yeah... It was nice alright... nice on damaging my wallet! Nonetheless, despite me having a few kilos of KBr, I dont have any reliable power source to do the electrolysis :(

On a sidenote: Why is it so incredibly difficult to find Methyl Ethyl Ketone in Canada? I seem to be able to find tons of hardware stores in the US that have it, but locally the best I can find are mixed solvent products containing,in part, MEK as well as methylene chloride, toluene, xylene and the oh so famous and vague "Petroleum distillates". Oh well...

The same thing happened to me. Just threaten to cancel your order and they'll ship it in the next few days!

easy on elemental fellas. they will ship. it sometimes takes a while. the longest it ever took for me to get an order from them was like 6 weeks and that was because i had them special order some activated alumina for me which is an item they don't stock. i have done business with them 7 or 8 times and i have always gotten everything i ordered and the items are correct. are they fast? no. will they honor your order? yes. the good thing about them is that they will not charge your card until the items are ready to ship. so make sure that you have the proper funds allotted on your card.

also don't be afraid to give them a call. they will be straight about what is going on.

It's on the precursor list and it's flammable and toxic. I've been looking for a specific reason why it's not available but haven't found one.

Maybe it's a combination of reasons that make it not worth the effort to stock? I'm not so into finding MEK as I'd love a source of Xylene, but it's another chemical that our hardware stores don't stock except in mixtures.

roger I understand that completely, besides patience is not a problem for me. :) Just wanted to make sure my experience wasn't out of the ordinary. All I ordered was ionic compounds anyways. thanks for the input! Hell I respect anyone willing to do what they do.
