    Before you go offshore..

    Try : http//www.ajaxfinechem.co.nz/
    Their catalogue is online. If you disregard their reagent grades some prices are not bad. And if you open an account you can probably negotiate a 20% discount..

    Also

    there are some commonly used things (in other industries) that can be found relatively cheaply. Sodium Sulphite is one that I bought for about $5 per kg. If you want some let me know.
