The Unofficial Sadtler Research Labs Home Page


This web site is dedicated to all the thousands of hard working
individuals who toiled in the fields of chemistry at Sadtler Research
Lab, Inc. during the company's long and distinguished history.

This includes Sadtler's shortest term employee whose name is
shrouded in the mists of time. He started his first day at Sadtler,
left the building for lunch, and never returned.
