and multi-language support, enhanced product search and e-commerce platform,
and up-to-the-minute news and product updates.
Phase I has recently been completed, giving Alfa Aesar customers in North
America, South America and Europe access to the improved site. Phase II will
be completed soon and will allow customers in Asia to enjoy the full benefits
of the new site.

The new site provides a greater variety of enhanced tools for product searches.
The description search has been improved to accommodate more intricate chemical
terminology. The site also offers searches by molecular structure/substructure,
competitor product number, alphabetical index, pure element index, and a special
platinum labware search.
Alfa Aesar customers will find an improved online shopping function with additional
enhancements including quick order entry as well as a My Account page, where
registered users have access to their favorites list, saved shopping carts,
and order history and status. The site's improved search results and product
detail listings feature molecular structures and detailed scientific literature
references with embedded links to related products. Further aiding the shopping
experience is a robust global inventory tracking feature that gives the user
accurate pricing and availability information and a suggested items feature
that recommends complementary products that are often used in conjunction with
selected products. Because many chemicals are restricted by international export
regulations, the site provides item-specific guidance notes to alert the user
to restrictions such as export license requirements.
The site also provides many features for requesting quotes and technical information
about Alfa Aesar products. A new quote request tool allows for custom specification
of a variety of chemicals, metals, materials and labware. As always, literature,
Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) and Certificates of Analysis are available
for download directly from the site.
