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.

Re: Running Scared.

Rations didn't cover testing volumes, so we had to swap out ACN with other solvents. Methanol was able to replace a good portion of the mobile phase requirements and some of our other uses.
