1.1 These test methods cover procedures for the chemical analysis of soaps containing synthetic detergents.
1.2 The analytical procedures appear in the following order:
|Moisture and Other Matter Volatile at 105°C (Oven Method)||5 and 6|
|Free Alkali or Free Acid||7 and 8|
|Anhydrous, Salt-Free, Soda Soap||9-12|
|Alcohol-Soluble Matter||13 and 14|
|Matter Insoluble in Water||15|
|Total Alkalinity of Matter Insoluble in Alcohol (Alkaline Salts)||16 and 17|
|Phosphate (Colorimetric Method Using Molybdenum Blue)||29-34|
|Unsaponified and Unsaponifiable Matter||35-39|
|Free Fatty Matter||40|
|Chlorides in Alcohol-Soluble Matter||41-43|
|Rosin (McNicoll Method)||44-47|
|Synthetic Detergent (by Difference)||48|
|Neutral, Inorganic Salts||49|

These test methods detail the standard procedures for the chemical analysis of soaps containing synthetic detergents. The analytical procedures include the determination of the following chemical properties and substances: moisture and other matter volatile at a specified temperature; free alkali or free acid; anhydrous, salt-free soda soap; alcohol-soluble matter; matter insoluble in water; total alkalinity of matter insoluble in alcohol (alkaline salts); sodium silicate; phosphates; phosphates by colorimetric method using molybdenum blue); unsaponified and unsaponifiable matter; free fatty matter; chlorides in alcohol-soluble matter; rosin by McNicoll method; synthetic detergent by difference; and neutral inorganic salts.View Less
