Selecting an Analytical Reagent on Amazon.com
An analytical reagent is a substance that causes or confirms a chemical reaction to check for the presence of another substance or compound. Many analytical reagents, designated as AR grade, have a purity of greater than or equal to 99.0%. An ACS analytical reagent meets standards of purity established by the American Chemical Society (ACS). To document the composition of the product, potential effects of exposure, and handling guidelines, a Material Data Safety Sheet (MSDS) may be included with an analytical reagent. Analytical reagents are available as powders or solutions. They are used for research and analysis in chemistry, biology, water quality testing, and chromatography applications.
