Chemistry: Finding Chemical Prices

Introduction to chemistry research at UGA, including databases, grant finding aids, and contact information for the liaison librarian.

Follow these steps to find chemical pricing information.

NOTE: If you don’t already have an account, you’ll need to create one (you’ll need to be on a campus IP address to do this—i.e. either on a desktop on campus or PAWS-Secure).

Here is the account creation link: https://origin-scifinder.cas.org/registration/index.html?corpKey=B1C505E8-86F3-50AB-3270-17751956A385

 

  • Once in SciFinder, choose the ‘Substance Identifier’ search option on the left side of the screen. Type in the name of the substance you are looking for (several examples of how to construct this search are listed below the search box) and hit the ‘search’ button.

 

  • Scan the results, and check the box on the one(s) that match your criteria (there should only be one, but it also displays chemical structures so you can quickly identify which chemical you’re interested in).

 

  • Now choose the ‘Get Commercial Sources’ button on the top-center of your screen right above the results. This will display the companies that sell this specific chemical.

 

  • If you click on the company name, it will provide you pricing information (including when it was last updated) as well as contact information for the supplier if the price isn’t available.
