GFS Chemicals, Inc. Company Profile

14:50 EDT 20th June 2018 | BioPortfolio

Seventy-five years of chemical manufacturing experience translates into a broad range of benefits for discerning users of specialty reagents and fine chemicals.Our Founder, G. Frederick Smith, was a Professor of Analytical Chemistry (University of Illinois). His interest in developing both inorganic chemicals and organic ligands as analytical reagents had a profound effect on development of analytical methodologies from 1930 to the 1950's.
Many of the insights Smith gleaned from the development of specialty analytical reagents were shared with the broader scientific community in the form of technical monographs and books published by the company and distributed at no charge. Perchlorates and Rare Earths continue to be topics of great interest to this day. The dissemination of technical and safety information on GFS chemical specialties remains among the highest of the company's current priorities.
Smith used careful engineering practices and sound chemical insight to extend the techniques that he used to develop analytical reagents on a small scale to multi-ton chemical manufacturing capacities. GFS is a primary manufacturer of a surprising variety of difficult-to-source and difficult-to-make specialty chemicals.
Recognition of the demand for increasingly pure chemical reagents allowed GFS to be one of the first to master the distillation of inorganic acids as well as specialty organics. GFS Trace Metal grade mineral acids provided the semiconductor industry with some of its first acids certified to sub-part per billion impurity levels.
