The Chemistry Research Stockroom mainly provides solvents, gases, liquid nitrogen, dry ice, and a few other consumables to researchers in the chemistry department and across the university.

Making Purchases

For regular users

Regular Stockroom users may find it more convenient to have an open "monthly blanket" Interdepartmental Service Request (ISR). The blanket ISR allows purchases up to the total dollar amount specified within HokieMart. Instructions for creating an ISR can be found here. Be sure to specify "VT Chemistry Research Stockroom" and to include the account code "1244R".

For occasional users

Occasional users must bring a printed Purchase Order (PO) at the time of pickup, indicating specific items to be obtained from the Stockroom. Printed POs must have a number starting with "P". Numbers starting with "R" indicates a requisition, not a PO. You will not be allowed to pick up items without appropriate paperwork. Items to be picked up must be listed on the PO and the ISR form must including packaging units to ensure that pricing is accurate.
Use the account code "1244R" on your order.

Please note: The Stockroom cannot make sales with cash.

Sending Packages

Users who'd like to send packages must include an Outgoing Shipping Request form, available here.
