We back up every product we sell with technical support that is unmatched in the industry. Our technical support team is ready to interact and answer your product questions.
We believe the personal human element makes a difference in today’s “electronic age.” That’s why GFS customers know they will always be able to connect with a live customer service representative.
Whether you’re buying grams or metric tons, your product can be packaged to your specifications – drums, cylinders, bags, boxes, pails or totes.
Using our proven technology to customize your product, we create customer-specific item numbers and SKUs to streamline and safeguard your process. Our formalized and repeatable ISO manufacturing ensures that you get the same exact material every time. We package according to your requirements in small packages through drums.
If your application requires more stringent conditions, we have experience with Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) processes. We are a key supplier of critical materials for numerous Fortune 100, GMP manufacturers. We understand the needs of our GMP customers – including pharmaceutical manufacturers.
GFS Chemicals has built a world-class reputation in the manufacture of anhydrous materials for decades through continuous refinement of moisture control technologies. Our proprietary in-house drying methods have led to the development of numerous value-added anhydrous chemicals for electronics, battery, pharmaceutical and specialty applications.
Our production environment gives us the flexibility to offer you innovative solutions for all of your chemical needs.

RARE EARTH CHEMISTR Y
GFS has extensive experience in manufacturing and sourcing the widest range of rare earth starting materials. Ultra-purity and ultra-dryness make GFS rare earth chemicals unmatched. We cover the majority of the Lanthanide series by offering rare earths ranging from ACS reagent grade through 99.99+ percent purity.
CERIUM CHEMISTR Y
GFS is primary in both Cerium III and IV chemistries. Some of the most demanding customers rely on GFS for their commercial applications.
PERCHLORATE CHEMISTR Y
GFS is a leading manufacturer of perchloric acids and salts. Our perchlorate chemistry results in the manufacture of high purity perchlorates including: magnesium perchlorate, lithium perchlorate, potassium perchlorate and sodium perchlorate salts to name just a few.
REDUCED MOI STURE PERCHLORATES
Our reduced-moisture perchlorates have a hygroscopic character that requires packaging in ampoules and handling in a rigorously dry environment. They can be used as catalysts in reactions that are only moderately sensitive to moisture.
LITHIUM CHEMISTR Y
GFS can supply many high purity lithium compounds, including lithium salts, lithium carbonate, lithium perchlorate and lithium iodide. Unlike some chemical manufacturers, GFS produces our lithium compounds from virgin lithium hydroxide – not from low-cost, low-quality lithium raw material residues. Purity levels for some GFS lithium products can exceed 99.99 percent.
LITHIUM ION CHEMISTRY IN ORGANIC SYNTHESIS
Anhydrous LiClO4 in diethyl ether has an uncommon solubility. The concept of “naked ion” Li+ chemistries in organic media has broad synthetic implications. GFS can offer a valuable collection of reactions and references to novel synthetic schemes promoted by perchlorate salts. GFS offers a free 44-page monograph entitled Practical Use of Anhydrous LiClO4 and Mg(ClO4)2 in Organic Synthesis.
Ultra High Purity Acid Distillation and Specialty Acid Manufacturing
Since 1956, through proprietary technology, GFS has perfected the distillation process to produce ultra-high purity acids to part-per-billion and part-per-trillion purity levels. We can supply nitric, hydrochloric, perchloric and sulfuric acids along with a host of trace metal grade acids. We supply some of the highest purity acids in the world today with virtually no trace contaminants whatsoever.
Our iodic and periodic acid are unmatched in purity due to our unique manufacturing processes. We also provide bulk packaging options for process applications requiring specific impurity profiles. Our expertise extends to the production of our reagent grade acids, which can be produced in metric tons and supplied in drums.
Inorganic Drying and Packaging
Because of the refinement of our moisture control technologies, GFS has built a world-class reputation in the manufacture of anhydrous fine chemicals, specialty chemicals and temperature-sensitive chemicals. We have a state-of-the-art dedicated dry room for production and packaging, where constant dew point and humidity are maintained. Our drying technology will continue to evolve as customers challenge us with more specific anhydrous requirements.
