Organics - Grignard Development

For more than 100 years, the chemistry of Grignard reagents (R-Mg-X) has been known for use as highly versatile tools for building carbon skeletons of complex organic molecules.
 
 
 
GFS has developed particular expertise in the production of alkynyl Grignard reagents. In addition, our recent acquisition of chemicals from Farchan Laboratories has incorporated, vinylic Grignards such as isopropenyl magnesium bromide into the GFS product line.
 
   
Grignard reagents from GFS are supplied in laboratory quantities or in bulk. In most cases, our Grignard reagents are manufactured on a demand basis.
 
 
 
In order to meet the needs of the research and industrial communities, GFS offers these products:
 
Anhydrous solvents for Grignard reactions.
Elemental magnesium and iodine to support production of Grignard reagents                    
Anhydrous cerium (III) chloride for Grignard initiation and organic reactions
 

 GFS Chemicals also carries a full line of anhydrous solvents suitable for Grignard systems, as well as materials for use as

Grignard initiators:

Solvents
Ethyl ether, anhydrous (#916)
Tetrahydrofuran (#2492)
MTBE (#2268)
n-butyl ether (#2639)

 Initiators
cerium(III) chloride, anhydrous (#2902)
iodine, prills (#2748)
