D.F. Goldsmith Chemical & Metal Corporation (DFG) specializes in chemical manufacturing, mercury refining services, and precious metals fabrication.


DFG opened in Chicago in 1960 with facilities to produce gold salts and to refine and bottle mercury. The company is now located in its own 5000-square-foot headquarters building in suburban Evanston, Illinois.

For over 50 years, DF Goldsmith has built a reputation as a valued supplier of high-purity chemical and precious metal based products. Our clients include R&D laboratories, the electronics and healthcare industries, research universities, and many others.

With a specific emphasis on precious metals, DF Goldsmith supplies a wide range of products, in addition to custom and toll-based manufacturing. DF Goldsmith can service customers who don’t need production quantities, but may require special financing or pricing arrangements. Though the product listing on our site is quite extensive, with many items available for prompt shipment, don’t feel limited to the items shown. Please request a quote for any product that you don’t find listed, but may be required for your unique application.

In 2000, DFG acquired Pool Products Packaging Corporation. Our Pool Products division manufactures, sells, and distributes “Algaedyn”, a Silver-based Algaecide for swimming pools.
