Search Strategy

SciFinder not only provides detailed lists of chemical manufacturers, but sometimes provides current pricing information. 

  1. Click on the Explore Substances icon, then type the name of the chemical.
  2. Click on Substance identifier
  3. Click on the Get Commercial Sources icon (which looks like a red flask) in the Substances bar. 

This will list the suppliers of your chemical, complete with links to their contact information and website.

There is a ton of other information about the chemical.  Click on Get References, and then limit your results to the subject you are interested in, such as Preparation, Properties, Uses, etc. 

When viewing the results screen, use the facets on the right to narrow your results.
