Bulk Chemical Prices

Finding prices for bulk chemicals has always been a challenge. Prices for bulk chemicals (e.g., 1 metric ton) are significantly different from finding laboratory chemical prices (i.e., one cannot just multiply 1 kg price found in a catalog by 1,000 and obtain a realistic price for a metric ton). In many cases, you may not be able to find a bulk chemical price for the chemical you want. With that said, there are a few places to search for bulk chemical pricing.
