General description

EMSURE grade solvents are suitable for a broad spectrum of classical lab applications, and are frequently used in regulated and highly demanding lab applications. EMSURE provides worldwide best and most extensive product specifications. We declare our EMSURE range to be in compliance with the ACS, with the reagent part of the European Pharmacopoeia (Reag. Ph Eur) and also with the ISO standards.
We are committed to bringing you Greener Alternative Products, which adhere to one or more of The 12 Principles of Greener Chemistry. This product is Biorenewable and alternative to petrochemical solvents. Ethanol is environmentally preferable green solvent and thus it aligns with "Safer Solvents and Auxiliaries" and "Use of Renewable Feedstocks". Click here  for more information.
