Standard Test Method for Relative Initial and Final Melting Points and the Melting Range of Organic Chemicals
|Publication Date:||1 November 2016|
|ICS Code (Organic chemicals in general):||71.080.01|
This test method covers the determination, by a capillary tube method, of the initial melting point and the final melting point, which define the melting range, of samples of organic chemicals whose melting points without decomposition fall between 30 and 250°C.
This test method is applicable only to crystalline materials that are sufficiently stable in storage to met the requirements of a satisfactory standard sample as defined in Section 7.
This test method is not directly applicable to opaque materials or to noncrystalline materials such as waxes, fats, and fatty acids.
Review the current Safety Data Sheets (SDS) for detailed information concerning toxicity, first aid procedures, handling, and safety precautions.
