High Purity Solvents


Spectrophotometric Solvents

Complete list of Spectrophotometric grade solvents

Sigma-Aldrich Spectrophotometric solvents are excellent for applications requiring high-purity, low residue on evaporation and a clean UV spectrum. Each one is rigorously tested during and after production to ensure lot-to-lot consistency is maintained.

Sigma-Aldrich Spectrophotometric solvents are available in Amber Glass Bottles.


Tax-Paid Ethanol

Complete list of Tax-Paid Ethanol

Purchasing 190 and 200 proof ethanol has never been easy, until now! Because these ethanols are federally regulated, a TTB permit is required to purchase 190 and 200 proof ethanol.

Sigma-Aldrich takes the hassle out of this process for you! There is no TTB paperwork needed or records to be kept on your part. Sigma-Aldrich immediately pays the federal excise tax (200-proof pure alcohol = $27.00/gallon).

For more regulatory information regard the tax on ethanol, visit the U.S. Department of the Treasury, Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau.

We offer tax-paid ethanol in a variety of grades to meet your application and are available in Amber Glass Bottles and Sure/Seal Bottles.


Pesticide Residue Analysis Solvents

Complete list of Pesticide Residue Analysis solvents

Sigma-Aldrich PRA solvents are glass-distilled and extensively tested by GC/ECD to ensure halogenated residue levels is kept to a minimum (<10ng/Liter unless otherwise indicated).

All PRA solvents are available in Amber Glass Bottles.


Capillary GC Solvents

Complete list of GC solvents

Sigma-Aldrich GC solvents are specially produced for those working with the stringent demands of capillary gas chromatography and are tested by GC/ECD to ensure that no peak greater than 2ng/Liter as lindane. Each solvent is glass-distilled, resulting in exceptional quality and low residue levels.

All GC solvents are available in Amber Glass Bottles.
