Every attempt will be made to process and ship orders within 24 business hours. When complete shipments cannot be made, partial shipments may be made at our discretion unless otherwise requested. Customers will be promptly notified of backordered and/or out-of-stock items.
Regardless of method of shipment, D.O.T. and I.A.T.A. regulations require the use of special packaging for certain hazardous chemicals. Additional charges for hazardous packaging and transportation will be added to the invoice. We will notify the customer of these costs when orders are placed and will attempt to reduce the costs by consolidating compatible items.
We will not accept return shipments without prior authorization and shipping instructions. The situations which give rise to returns are often complicated and require individual attention and special handling. Unidentified or unauthorized return shipments will be discarded without credit. Be sure to contact us and we will do our best to resolve each situation in an equitable manner. Please note, certain items may not be returned for credit, including, but not limited to, refrigerated or frozen products; bulk, custom synthesis or special order items; and opened containers.

Items which are proven defective or non-conforming to our specifications will be replaced at no charge or, at our discretion, credit issued upon receipt of returned goods.
All claims for replacement or credit must be made within 90 days of receipt of goods.
Our liability for any and all claims, losses or damages arising for any cause, including our negligence, shall in no event exceed the purchase price of the materials with respect to which the cause arose. In no event shall we be liable for incidental or consequential damages.
Order cancellations may be subject to restocking fees.
Bulk, Custom Synthesis, and Special Order items are non-cancellable.
High quality is a requirement for every Synaptent LLC (dba NewMind.com) product. All the chemicals listed in our catalog have been rigorously tested in our Quality Control Laboratory for determination of purity and consistency. The purity and physical constants stated with the product listing are typical values, and may vary slightly from lot to lot. If additional information is needed regarding purity, please contact our Technical Service Department.
All products offered on this website or in our catalog are for research purposes only. They are in no way to be used for food, drug, household or any other applications. These chemicals are research chemicals as defined under TSCA. As such they should be used or handled only by or under direct supervision of "Technically qualified individuals" as defined in 40 CFR § 720.3 (ee):
"Technically qualified individual means a person or persons (1) who, because of education, training, or experience, or a combination of these factors, is capable of understanding the health and environmental risks associated with the chemical substance which is used under his or her supervision, (2) who is responsible for enforcing appropriate methods of conducting scientific experimentation, analysis, or chemical research to minimize such risks, and (3) who is responsible for the safety assessments and clearances related to the procurement, storage, use, and disposal of the chemical substance as may be appropriate or required within the scope of conducting a research and development activity."
By using our website and making a purchase, you (the Buyer) are representing to us that you are a Technically qualified individual meeting the above definition, who is over 21 years of age.
You (the Buyer) are acknowledging that the hazards, physiological and toxicological properties of most of our chemicals have not yet been fully investigated and/or determined. Therefore, all of our chemicals should be handled with the utmost caution when they are used, stored or during disposal. Synaptent LLC (dba NewMind.com) makes no guarantee of any results, and assumes no liability for damage to any person, persons or property resulting from incorrect handling, storage, usage, improper human or animal exposure to, or disposal of our products. Synaptent LLC (dba NewMind.com) is not responsible for conditions and actions which are beyond our control.
Safety Data Sheets (SDS)
We supply SDS to our customers with the delivery of our products as required by the OSHA Hazard Communication Standard and many state laws. SDS are also available to customers upon request.
Every effort is made to provide current known information. However, the nature of new research chemicals precludes complete knowledge. Synaptent LLC (dba NewMind.com) makes no claim as to the completeness, correctness, currency, or comprehensiveness of information provided in our SDS. Synaptent LLC (dba NewMind.com) products are intended for use by qualified professionals only, who are familiar with the potential hazards, and have been fully trained in proper safety, laboratory and chemical handling procedures.
Hazardous Material Disposal
When disposing of a chemical, careful consideration must be given to the chemical and physical properties of the compound. It is imperative all national, state and local laws and regulations governing chemical disposal be observed and followed.
All waste disposal of chemicals should be handled only by individuals who have received specific chemical education and training and who are conversant with chemical handling and safety procedures. Since the hazards and physical properties of any chemical may not yet be fully determined, only technically qualified persons familiar with potential hazards should be responsible for their disposal.
Many chemicals in this catalog have been made on a research basis only. Their chemical, physiological, and toxicological properties and hazards have not yet been fully investigated or determined.
When possible, hazard class, Merck Index, Chemical Abstract and RTECS Numbers may be provided for some chemicals. Synaptent LLC (dba NewMind.com) does not accept any responsibility for this information's correctness, completeness, or that it may fully provide all hazardous properties of each chemical. Chemicals may be extremely toxic or otherwise hazardous. The absence of warning as to these conditions cannot and should not be interpreted as an indication of safety.
All products should be handled only by individuals familiar with their potential hazards and who have been fully trained in proper safety, laboratory, and chemical handling procedures. SDS will be provided as required by OSHA's Hazard Communication standard.
If a product is hazardous, the product description will carry a number of 1-9. This number is for one of the nine classes determined by the UN Committee of Experts on the Transport of Dangerous Goods. The UN classes relate to the type of hazard:
2. Compressed gases
3. Flammable and combustible liquids
4. Flammable solids, spontaneously combustible materials, and materials that are dangerous when wet
5. Oxidizers and organic peroxides
6. Toxic materials
7. Radioactive materials
8. Corrosive materials
9. Miscellaneous hazardous materials

Buyer will be deemed to have assented to those terms and conditions unless Seller receives written notice of any objection within 15 days after Buyer's receipt of this form. Seller's failure to object to provisions contained in any purchase order or any other form or document from Buyer shall not be construed as a waiver of these terms and conditions nor an acceptance of any such provision. This contract and the terms and conditions shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Illinois.
No change by Seller of any term or condition of this contract or any of Seller's rights to remedies hereunder shall be binding on Seller, nor shall the order hereby acknowledged be canceled or changed by Buyer, unless Seller shall expressly consent hereto in writing by Seller's authorized officer. There are no representations, agreements, promises or understandings between Buyer and Seller that are not expressed herein.
Delivery, Claims, Delays, Returns
Unless specified in writing, all sales are FCA Seller's shipping point. In its discretion, Seller reserves the right to determine the exact method of shipment. Delivery of goods to the carrier at Seller's plant or other loading point shall constitute delivery to Buyer and regardless of shipping terms, all risk of loss or damage in transit shall be borne by Buyer. Seller reserves the right to make delivery in installments, all such installments to be separately invoiced and paid for when due per invoice, without regard to subsequent deliveries. Delay in delivery of any installment shall not relieve Buyer of its obligation to accept remaining deliveries.
Immediately upon Buyer's receipt of any goods shipped hereunder, Buyer shall inspect the same and shall notify Seller in writing of any claims for shortages, defects or damages and shall hold the goods for Seller's written disposition. If Buyer shall fail to so notify Seller within 10 days after the goods have been received by Buyer, such goods shall conclusively be deemed to conform to the terms and conditions hereof and to have been irrevocably accepted by the Buyer.
Seller shall not be liable for any loss, damage or penalty as a result of any delay in or failure to manufacture, deliver or otherwise perform hereunder due to any cause beyond Seller's reasonable control, including without limitation, unsuccessful reactions, act of Buyer, embargo or other governmental act regulation or request affecting the conduct of Seller's business, fire, explosion, accident, theft, vandalism, riot, acts of war, strikes or other labor difficulties, lightning, flood, windstorm or other acts of God, delay in transportation, or inability to obtain necessary labor, fuel, materials, supplies or power.
Goods may not be returned for credit except with Seller's written permission, and then only in strict compliance with Seller's return of shipment instructions.
Allocation of Goods
If Seller is unable for any reason to supply the total demands for goods specified in Buyer's order, Seller may allocate its available supply among any or all buyers on such basis as Seller may deem fair and practical, without liability for any failure of performance which may result.
Taxes and Other Charges
Any use tax, sales tax, excise tax, duty, custom, inspection or testing fee, or any other tax, fee or charge of any nature whatsoever imposed by any government authority, on or measured by the transaction between Seller and Buyer shall be paid by the Buyer in addition to the prices quoted or invoiced. In the event Seller is required to pay any such tax, fee or charge, Buyer shall reimburse Seller; or, in lieu of such payment, Buyer shall provide Seller at the time the order is submitted an exemption certificate or other document acceptable to the authority imposing the tax, fee or charge.
Due to special handling requirements and the hazardous nature of products sold, additional charges for hazardous packaging and transportation may be added to the invoice.
