Ordering Chemicals at UVM

To help minimize the fire risk associated wtih specific chemicals in UVM laboratories, the Environmental Safety office manages the ChemSource program, which stocks five chemicals which present specific flammability hazards: acetone, ethanol, methanol, acetonitrile and nitric acid, as well as specific safety supplies. This program holds the University's state and federal licenses for the purchase of ethanol on campus. Thus, all non-denatured ethanol used on campus must be purchased through the ChemSource program.

Ordering of chemicals from ChemSource requires the use of a UVM PeopleSoft chartstring. After you click on the link below, you will be asked for your UVM NetID and password (the same ones you use for Peoplesoft). This enables us to identify the chartstrings you have previously used with ChemSource so that you will only have to enter the chartstring once. If you have not previously ordered with us, log in and we will give you the chance to enter a new chartstring.
