  • Top Ten Chemical Searches
    The top searches on Chemspy reflect some of the fairly obvious interests of our readers as well as some of the more esoteric: imidacloprid formulations, anthracene, sulfuric acid, basic information of stereospecific compound, m-CPBA, terpenoids, Dynacco Inc, Polyvinyl Alchohol manufacturer, stoichiometry lab activity, chemical prices, ammonia, imidacloprid solubility, naphthalene, methanol, isooctanol, ketanserin, stoichiometry/labs, metformin, trichloromethane... The list goes on. At some point we may produce a page to point to detailed information on each of these. In the meantime, feel free to use our specialist search engines such as, pubchem etc and of course Chemspy's own internal search facilities.
