Petroleum products — Determination of boiling range distribution — Gas chromatography method

This International Standard specifies a method for the determination of the boiling range distribution of petroleum products. The method is applicable to petroleum products and fractions with a final boiling point of 538 °C or lower at atmospheric pressure as determined by this International Standard. This International Standard is not applicable to gasoline samples or gasoline components. The method is limited to products having a boiling range greater than 55 °C and having a vapour pressure sufficiently low to permit sampling at ambient temperature.
The method has successfully been applied to samples containing fatty acid methyl esters (FAME) up to 10 % (V/V).
NOTE For the purposes of this International Standard, the terms "% (m/m)" and % (V/V) are used to represent the mass fraction (μ), respectively the volume fraction (φ) of a material.
