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.

*sigh*

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.
