Standard Test Method for Acid Number of Terephthalic Acid (TA) by Automatic Potentiometric Titration
|Publication Date:||1 March 2016|
|ICS Code (Organic acids):||71.080.40|
significance And Use:
5.1 An estimate of TA purity can be determined by titrating with KOH. As an index of TA purity, the acid number can be used as a guide in the quality control of TA production.
1.1 This test method covers the determination of acid number in terephthalic acid (TA) by automatic potentiometric titration. As the index of TA purity, acid number is usually within 674 to 676 mg KOH/g.
1.2 In determining the conformance of the test results using this method, results shall be rounded off in accordance with the rounding-off method of Practice E29.
1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
1.4 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.
