Standard Test Method for Determination of Various Anionic Surfactant Actives by Potentiometric Titration
|Publication Date:||10 September 1997|
|ICS Code (Other standards related to analytical chemistry):||71.040.99|
1.1 This test method is based on a potentiometric titration of common anionic surfactants and blends of anionic surfactant with a hydrotrope. This test method solely is intended for the analysis of active matter in the following surfactants: alcohol ether sulfate, alpha olefin sulfonate, alkylbenzene sulfonate/sodium xylene sulfonate blend (5:1), sodium alkylbenzene sulfonate/sodium xylene sulfonate blend (16:1), and sodium alkylbenzene sulfonate/sodium xylene sulfonate blend (22:1). It has not been tested for surfactant formulations.
1.2 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Material Safety Data Sheets are available for reagents and materials. Review them for hazards prior to usage.
