What can I purchase on TXShop?

The following merchandise and services are now offered on TXShop.  The full selection is available in Welch Hall with a reduced selection in NHB.


  • Ethanol
  • Department-owned cylinder gases
  • Dry ice (IMPORTANT:  if you purchase dry ice on TXShop DO NOT enter the amount on the clipboard in the Storerooms or you will be billed twice!)



You do not need to be a member of the department to purchase ethanol or dry ice, but you must be registered to use the site.  All purchases must be by interdepartmental transfer (IDT) of funds, and you will be required to enter an authorized account number during purchases.  There will be NO CASH or CREDIT CARD sales.


How do I start?

Visit the TXShop site, select "Chemistry Department Sales" from the list of shops, and log in using your EID. During your first purchase ONLY, you will be required to fill out a registration form which will establish your personal profile. You may update your profile at any time. When registering, enter your UT contact information including your University address—you do not need secondary addresses. 

PLEASE NOTE:  Because of a programming glitch DO NOT ENTER A UNIVERSITY MAIL CODE—leave it blank.


Merchandise Purchases

From the Chemistry Shop Home Page click on the merchandise category you want and make your selections.  You will be presented a receipt when you check out.  Print out your receipt and present it to storeroom personnel in WEL or NHB to pick up your items.  Also, please remember: YOU MUST BE A MEMBER OF THE CHEMISTRY DEPARTMENT TO UTILIZE OUR CYLINDER GAS SERVICE.


The TXShop site allows you to see if the item(s) you want to purchase in the storerooms are in stock.  Also, for cylinder customers you can purchase a new tank from your lab, take your empty to the storeroom and pick up the fresh tank in only one trip.



When you have finished adding the item(s) you want to purchase to your cart, click on the “Checkout” button. You will then be directed to a page that shows an itemized list of items in your cart.  Select “Checkout UT EID”.   On your first use, you will see the registration form.  Your profile will be saved for future sessions, and you will have the option to update your profile if needed.  Next select “Purchase for Myself.” On the next screen you will select “IDT” at the bottom of the screen. Then enter the UT account # you’d like to use for your purchase in the textbox that appears on the next page, and click “Pay”. Your receipt will appear next, and you will receive an email confirmation of your TXShop order as well.
