Here are some resources to help you track down chemical prices. You may find the price on a chemical supplier's website or through SciFinder's database of chemical catalogs, or through a full text search of one of our databases that covers newspapers and trade magazines like ICIS Chemical Business or Chemical Week.
For more resources on chemistry or chemical engineering, consult those research guides.
