i cannot find methyl ionone ( mixture of isomers ) anywehere . I have only alfa, beta gamma ionones. Please anyone could sell me 1-10 ml ?
Google "Methyl Ionone suppliers", there are any number. When something is described as "alpha methyl ionone" it doesn't mean that it is pure sample of that isomer. It just means that the major component is the alpha isomer. Similarly for "gamma Methyl Ionone", the major component is the gamma isomer. When you buy a sample of any Ionone (indeed any chemical) you should receive a document called the MSDS, and that should tell you the proportions of the isomers in that mixture. Various companies manufacture Methyl Ionone , and each company produces a different mix of isomers. It is up to you to decide which ones you want.
hexapus.nl sells methyl ionone (iso)
Jan was also kind enough to help me in sourcing some alpha methyl ionone extra as a special order, which I needed for a specific formula, and could find available nowhere. It's lovely stuff actually and slightly different from the iso, a very clean elegant violet with a dry edge to it and a slight honey-like dry down. I love it.
(I also have extra if anybody needs/wants some. PM please as we can't do splits etc. on this forum)
