Standard Test Method for Determining Chloride Used in Calculating Pentachlorophenol in Solutions or Wood (Lime Ignition Method)
|Publication Date:||27 October 1989|
|ICS Code (Wood-protecting chemicals):||71.100.50|
These procedures cover the chemical analysis by the lime ignition method of treating solutions containing pentachlorophenol and of wood treated with pentachlorophenol. The method is suitable for the determination of up to 0.05 g of pentachlorophenol in treating solutions (Section 8), up to 0.05 g of pentachlorophenol in wood volumes up to 0.25 in.³ (Section 9), and up to 0.25 g of pentachlorophenol in wood volumes up to 2.0 in.³ (Section 11).
This test method is not applicable to samples containing halogens other than chlorine unless appropriate correction can be made. Total halogen (excluding fluorine) is calculated as its pentachlorophenol equivalent of chloride.
