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.
