Photographer's Formulary is the go-to place for sulfuric acid.
And as Jason mentioned, you'll need to fill out a DEA form, which I believe is on their website.
But please--please--be careful when mixing this stuff!!!
1) Never add water to the acid--it will explode! Look what happened to me:
****Instead, always add the acid to the water.
2) Where a full shield, clear plastic face mask, and rubber gloves that cover your forearms.
3) Where an organic vapors mask and work in a space with good ventilation.
I know this all sounds extreme, but better safe. All it takes is one drop of this stuff in the wrong place...
As my childhood neighbor, Mr. Sutherland used to admonish us, "Play nice!"
hmmm, he may have been talking about something else...
