So, world-wide Acetonitrile shortage. I got to spend today calling every vendor I could think of to see if anyone could help my thirsty HPLC. Some places are so far behind they won't even sell it on backorder.


Anyone know how that happened? One sales rep told me a couple of stories, but she had no idea how true they were.

We need Acetonitrile, Cas No.: 75-05-8 in HPLC-grade, it could be Chromasolv, Omnisolv, Pestisolv or similar.
It is important that it is for laboratory use, for HPLC (High Performance Liquid Chromatography) and for GC (Gas Chromatography).
30 bottles of 2½ liter

Do you have any to sell us? Do you know where we can buy this from?

Thank you,
Paula Young

Re: Acetonitrile


My name is Jose Miranda. I work fo All-Pak. We are EMD chemicals distributors in Puerto Rico and we do have some Acetonitrile in stock, both HPLC and Omnisolv. We are especting a shipment in a few days from EMD and I should have a better idea if I am able to spare a few cases. Email me in 2 weeks from today at mirandaj@all-pak.com. I should know by them.

although our warehouse is in Puerto Rico, we are currently shipping to customers who has operations in the US as well, ie; Schering Plough.
