Standard Test Method for Alcohol Content and Purity of Acetate Esters by Gas Chromatography
|Publication Date:||10 January 2002|
|ICS Code (Solvents):||87.060.30|
This test method covers the determination by gas chromatography of the ester content and the corresponding alcohol content of acetate esters. This test method has been applied to ethyl, n-propyl, isopropyl, n-butyl, isobutyl, and 2-ethoxyethyl acetates.
Water, and in some cases acetic acid, cannot be determined by this test method and must be measured by other appropriate ASTM procedures and the results used to normalize the chromatographic value.
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.
