CUSTOMISED PRODUCTS FOR ORGANIC SYNTHESIS
Merck has a portfolio of more than 5000 building blocks for your synthesis process. Customised products provide you with a perfect solution for your specific production applications. Customisation is possible on several different levels: packaging, analyses, withdrawal systems, sources, etc. Merck products will allow you to:
- Save time and effort
- Minimise health risks
- Simplify scale-up
- Ensure that your exact requirements are met
EMSURE® PRODUCTS IN BIGGER PACK SIZES
The EMSURE® brand comprises of the premium-grade inorganic reagents and solvents optimised for regulated analyses and highly demanding applications. These products are known for:
- Extremely good impurity profile
EMSURE® products come with the most extensive specifications worldwide. Some of them are tested for up to 70 parameters. Every EMSURE® product comes with a comprehensive Certificate of Analysis that includes an extended impurity profile for each batch. All of this gives you absolute analytical security and prevents misinterpretation of results caused by impurities.
- Comprehensive documentation
MSDS, product specifications, batch-specific Certificates of Analysis and physicochemical information are all standard documents that are available 24/7 on the VWR web shop. Merck also gives you the opportunity to buy an advanced documentation pack.
- Convenient and safe packaging
Next to the standard, small pack sizes for laboratory use, Merck also offers a variety of large pack sizes and withdrawal systems for your specific production applications. These customised solutions ensure safe and convenient handling, storage and transportation. These chemicals and reagents are protected against contamination.
- Corresponding withdrawal systems
These withdrawal systems are tailor-made for Merck’s barrels and drums. They are designed to ensure safe, easy and efficient solvent withdrawal, while meeting all relevant safety regulations. There is a possibility to have a system with manual pressure build-up as well as inert gas pressurising. Additionally, all kinds of reducers, adapters and couplings are available that allow easy interconnection of all components.
EMSURE® ACIDS, SALTS AND SOLVENTS IN SMALL PACK SIZES FOR LABORATORY USE
Merck has a variety of products to support you during your quality control, depending on the analytical application.
The EMSURE® brand is composed of premium-grade inorganic reagents and solvents optimised for regulated analyses and highly demanding applications. The advantages of this range are:
- High quality impurity profile
- Complete literature
- Convenient and safe packaging
- Adapted withdrawal systems
SUPRASOLV® SOLVENTS FOR GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY
Gas chromatography is a frequently used analytical technique for separating and analysing compounds that can be vapourised without decomposition. Suprasolv® solvent’s specifications are optimised to ensure the maximum performance of your GC application, no matter if you use ECD, FID or MS. All SupraSolv® solvents are of high quality and show high batch consistency which allows reliable, accurate and reproducible results.
UNISOLV® SOLVENTS FOR ORGANIC TRACE ANALYSIS
UniSolv® is a truly universal solution for all your organic trace analysis. Thanks to special procedures, UniSolv®’s specifications are even broader and higher than that of SupraSolv®. For example, the specified retention time for ECD is larger, while the permissible concentration of interference signals within the retention time range for all detectors is lower. Due to this high performance, UniSolv® is recommended for all analytical tasks that require the highest levels of reliability such as organic trace analysis.
LICHROSOLV® HYPERGRADE FOR LC-MS
LiChrosolv® hypergrade is designed specifically for LC-MS suitability. The low level of ionic background and low ion suppression ensure high reproducibility and high ionisation efficiency in LC-MS applications. Merck has recently expanded the range of LiChrosolv® products to support you even better in these applications.
LICHROPUR® REAGENTS FOR ION-PAIR CHROMATOGRAPHY
LiChropur® reagents, designed for ion-pair chromatography, consist of strongly hydrophobic ionic compounds. These compounds form neutral ion pairs with oppositely charged sample molecules. By forming these pairs, the reagents allow fluent separation of charged and non charged molecules. Merck has recently expanded the range of LiChropur® reagents to support you even better in this application.
CERTIPUR® ICP STANDARDS
Merck’s high quality Certipur® reference materials comprise of single- and multi-element standards for ICP. These are ready to use solutions, certified and traceable to primary standard reference material from NIST. Stringent quality control procedures ensure highest precision; ICP standards are analysed using ICP-OES and ICP-MS methods and certified by Merck’s own ISO 17025 accredited laboratory. All relevant information is documented in the batch-specific Certificate of Analysis. Merck is also accredited Reference Material Producer according to ISO Guide 34 for ICP single-element standards.
