    Raw chemicals - where in Europe(Sweden) to get them

    Well, I hope that the title is descriptive enough.
    There are of course firms that sell raw chemicals in Sweden, but as soon as they learn that you are a private person, looking for "relatively" small quantities, and not a company they more or less hang up the phone on you.
    So, are there any places in Europe which can sell and send to Sweden.
    (I know of SilverPrint in the UK, but shipping from the UK is very expensive. Shipping from the US is even more expensive and probably impossible due to regulations for some chemicals. The best would of course be some company in Sweden, but Germany would also do nicely.)

    The best way I've found is to register a company and buy from VWR.

    Since I already had a one-person business registered, I replenish my stocks from VWR whenever I need to.

    Anything in particular you're after? I have more than I need of just about everything, and since my small business is in "import, export and trade with photographic materials and services" I could easily export something to Sweden...

    Björn,

    I justed posted this link just for comparison use in the Lounge:

    http://www.omikron-online.de/lshop,s...kalien,,,,.htm

    http://www.omikron-online.de/lshop,s....photo,,,,.htm

    They will send to Sweden too (not USA, Canada…). However their website is in German only.

    Thank you to both AgX and Ole.
    Now I only have to translate the recepies to German (actually, that means to swedish... i.e. it should be more or less the same, shouldn't it Ole... :-)
    I'm going to write down a wish-list and work from that. Any further tips are of course welcome.

    Cheers

    Just note that "Pyrocatechin" is "Brenzcatechin" in German. All the others should be easy to figure out (it's sold under that name by VWR too, which took me a while to guess)!

    Isn't he running around with a modern wishbone looking for nordic treasures?
    So he might have a crystal ball too...

    I'm a geologist, so even if I don't have a crystal ball I have a drawer full of crystals.

    Once upon a time I did a little dowsing too...

    Björn, check with Svenska Kemi if they can get photographic chemicals too. They sell potassium dichromate as an additive to fireworks.
    The camera is merely the means of capturing the image.

    I just realized that the Omikron company has got a second website,

    http://www.omikron-online.de/cyberchem/

    with basically the same content concerning their general chemicals list, but at least in one case different links to background information about the chemical.
