Introduction

How to buy reagents? In this topic, I'll consider the theme of Watched chemicals and where you can buy them without any attention from drug police department of your country. There are some information such as boiling point, melting point ant etc. about popular and available solvents and other reagents. Also, some information about trade names and forms. Here you can find lists of Watched substances in US and EU. I would really appreciate if BB forum members add my topic with helpful information about searching these substances, contained in any non-controlled trademark.

Watched chemicals list in EU*

Substances and classifications table (31/10/2008)

*The information in the lists may be outdated, the lists are constantly updated.

Table of main precursors

I leave it up to you to judge how you may approach ordering these chems. My personal take on all this is that anyone, two or possibly three of these chems ordered together would not be suspicious unless they were ordered in very large amounts, or they were known to have specific uses when ordered together. Finally, it is worth noting that someone, somewhere, once said he hoped the government would place every chemical under suspicion or restriction. I agree because it would negate its own intentions. And let me tell that Watched Chemical List is huge! It is, in fact, prohibitively huge. And the bigger it gets, the sillier and more useless it becomes.

Reference and general information

Terms:
"bp"
= boiling point (or boiling fraction in some cases), note: boiling points are slightly lower at high altitudes
"°C" = degrees centigrade
"dens" = density (in grams per ml unless otherwise specified)
"dis:" = what it dissolves
"F" = degrees Fahrenheit
"LD50" = (lethal dose 50%) dosage at which 50% of test subjects (rats, dogs, etc.) died.
"mis" = miscible with
"mp" = melting point
"otc:" = (over-the-counter) where to find it, etc.
"pol:" = polarity ( > = more polar than, < = less polar than )
"prop:" = physical properties
"sol:" = what it is soluble in
"tox:" = data on toxicity. if not listed, don't assume it is safe!
"uses:" = common uses. this is nice to know when you are asking a store clerk to help you find it.

Substitutions

It is not always easy to come up with the exact solvent discussed in any particular recipe. Consequently, it may be advantageous to consider substituting an over-the-counter solvent for a hard-to-get one. This can often be done successfully if you keep a few things in mind. The main thing to look for is what the solvent dissolves. Remember the rule: substances that are similar in nature dissolve in each other. This means that non-polar substances dissolve in non-polar solvents. For instance, hydrocarbons solve in hexane well. Be aware that some solvents may dissolve more than you bargained for. Alcohols and acetone will dissolve things that petroleum distillates won't, like sugars and chlorophyll. Another thing to look for is boiling point. Naphtha solvent (coal tar naphtha) has a boiling point so high that you wouldn't be able to boil it off to separate it from THC (the THC would boil off with it). Solvents with lower boiling points are much easier to boil off, and usually leave less residual solvent. Petroleum distillates are typically a mixture of various hydrocarbons with a variety of boiling points. The boiling fraction of any particular petroleum distillate refers to the range of boiling points of its components.

Purity

There are basically two ways that impurities can get into solvents, etc. The first way is inherent in the manufacturing process. Very few products are pure at the time of manufacture. The general idea is to produce a product that meets certain minimum purity requirements. The product is refined to remove contaminants until the minimum purity level is reached. Most manufacturing methods favor low-cost production over purity of product. Industrial grade products are used in applications that require only marginal purity. With reagent grade chemicals, however, a high degree of purity is required. Reagent grades are refined until they are ridiculously pure (e.g. something like 99.999% pure). This additional refining is costly, and as a result, reagent grades are usually many times the price of industrial grades. Industrial grades are used in many commercial products, and are often available at hardware stores, etc. Reagent grades are generally only available at chemical supply stores. Unfortunately, most kitchen chemists would have a difficult time bluffing their way in a chem shop without arousing suspicion. Additionally, many reagent grade products are watched closely by certain government agencies, where the industrial grades are not. (e.g. acetone)

The other way impurities can be introduced is when the manufacturer intentionally places additives into a product to enhance its performance (or appearance) or to dilute an expensive component. Since the performance enhancing additives frequently cost more, the expensive, big brand names are the ones most likely to use them. When performance enhancing additives are present, the product labels regularly boast numerous features. The less expensive, more generic looking products are less likely to add performance enhancers but are more likely to dilute their product. Some additives may actually be useful, however. e.g. paint and varnish removers often combine methylene chloride with methyl alcohol, and furniture refinishers often have toluene combined with methyl alcohol.

EU countries may have different lists, it all depends on the particular country. Some substances are banned throughout the EU. Which substance and country are you interested in?

This one list does not exist, in the EU practically every chemical is monitored, the key point is REACH regulation.
There are also various lists of substance groups in REACH, according to which certain restrictions must be observed.
The EU also has separate regulations for drug precursors or explosives.
But if you are talking about chemicals where you have to be registered, these are all chemicals where you have to sign a declaration.
But there is no general notification to the authorities. However, dealers are instructed to inform the authorities in case of suspicious inquiries or orders and then they are also instructed not to deliver certain things.

You should already inform yourself a little about the chemical law of your country when you want to buy and that you have found nothing, I do not believe you.

A few examples: (The list is every time at the end of the document)

Norway. i need to figure out some way of shortening the synthesis i am currently at a route that is not going to work out in the scale i am going for.

You can reach out to our experts. They can help, including advice on the legality of chemicals in your country as well as synthesis optimization.

It's also important from WHERE one order ones chemicals. Most of the larger chemical companies (Sigma et al) will refuse orders from individuals or businesses without an array of licenses and verified factories. Smaller reputable companies are required to report any suspicious purchases. If you order from overseas with forged documents or falsely declared contents you always run the risk of getting checked by customs.
So part of the game is to find necessary chemicals from non-suspicious sources in your country. Examples are pool chems, but also metal hobby shops (for example acids), pyrotechnic supplies (oxidizers other than chlorates and perchlorates and metal powders), beekeeping equipment (formic acid and acetic acid is used for pest control), aquarium stores (formaldehyde), homegrowing kits (phosphoric acid is used for pH control, sometimes even nitric acid), paint stores (THF from liquid PVC glue, DCM or toluene from paint removers, HCl from concrete cleaning liquids, ammonia, etc), urea can be found in footsalts, additives for diesel cars and cold packs, ammonium nitrate in cold packs or fertilizers etc etc.
