Here are some resources I have put together 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.
