"Sourcing chemicals, metals and lab materials"

1st April 2013

With more than 15000 products in the current 1999-2000 Catalogue, Alfa Aesar is a source for chemicals, metals and laboratory materials from sizes for research to semi-bulk and bulk quantities. The catalogue carries high purity inorganics, pure metals, alloys, elements, precious metal compounds and catalysts, rare earths, analytical fluxes, ceramics, labware, AA/ICP standards and more.

The product descriptions have detailed technical information and many of the product descriptions have physical property data and application notes. Several hundred cross references make it easier for customers to find the exact product they need.

Although Alfa Aesar's reputation has been built as a manufacturer and supplier of research chemicals and metals. But it also specialises in producing and sourcing speciality chemicals, metals and materials for applications from research to production.

The company can supply semi-bulk and bulk quantities of most products in the catalogue ­ many directly from stock. Special packaging and labeling is available to meet specifications.

Alfa Aesar can also meet your needs for higher purity products, non-standard forms and sizes, special packaging or precise specifications.

Alfa Aesar products include:

€ Puratronic: Alfa Aesar's higher purity inorganic compounds and metal powders make up the Puratronic brand line. Puratronic product purities are generally the highest available, typically 99.995per cent to 99.9999per cent, with some reaching 99.99995per cent. Each step of the production process is carefully documented and strict quality controls are employed. All Puratronic products come with a batch-specific Certificate of Analysis.

€ Specpure analytical standard solutions. Specpure atomic absorption standard solution concentrations are accurate to ±.0per cent and plasma solutions to ±0.3per cent. All standards are shipped with a batch-specific Certificate of Analysis.

€ Spectroflux are alkali metal borate based fluxes prepared for use in a variety of analytical methods. A range of fluxes is available for use in methods such as direct reading optical or X-ray emission spectrometers, spectrophotometers, polarographs, ion selective electrodes, ICP or classical techniques.

€ Reacton. This is a broad range of high purity rare earth compounds, including oxides, halides, carbonates, nitrates, acetates and more, all with batch-specific Certificates of Analysis.

€ Premion is the name for high purity precious metal compounds and pure elements. The minimum purity for pure elements is 99.99per cent and for compounds 99.95per cent (metals basis) supplied with batch-specific Certificates of Analysis.


Alfa Aesar, part of Johnson Matthey GmbH, is based in Karlsruhe, Germany.
