Standard Test Methods for Low Concentrations of Diethylene Glycol in Ethylene Glycol by Gas Chromatography
|Publication Date:||1 October 2003|
These test methods are intended primarily for the analysis of mixtures of ethylene and diethylene glycols in which the diethylene glycol concentration is 0.1 % or less. Both test methods should be applicable to higher concentrations of diethylene glycol, but precision and bias estimates have been obtained only for 0.05 to 0.1 % diethylene glycol.
NOTE 1 - Test Methods E 202 describe another gas chromatographic test method applicable to mixtures of ethylene, diethylene, and triethylene glycols and mixtures of propylene, dipropylene, and tripropylene glycols in which one of the glycols is the principal component and the other two are present in concentrations of 0.1 to 1 % each.
The two test methods are given as follows:
