Sigma-Aldrich Corp. (Nasdaq: SIAL) CEO Rakesh Sachdev is commenting at a Goldman Sachs conference today. Sachdev said his company is looking into M&A, but there are fewer large targets out there ripe for the picking.

Given that Sigma-Aldrich is a $10 billion market cap company, we've filtered out a few picks that might be in range. The following all operate in the specialty chemical arena and generally have market caps above $1 billion:
  • Innophos Holdings (Nasdaq: IPHS)
  • PolyOne Corp (NYSE: POL)
  • Sensient Technologies (NYSE: SXT)
  • Cytec (NYSE: CYT)
  • Chemtura (Nasdaq: CHMT)
  • Albermarle (NYSE: ALB)
Rockwood Holdings (NYSE: ROC) is also notable with a P/E of just 9.5 times, one of the lowest in the segment with a decent market cap.
