Standard Test Method for Aldehydes in Monoethylene Glycol (Spectrophotometric Method)
|Publication Date:||1 October 2003|
|ICS Code (Chemical analysis):||71.040.40|
This test method describes the spectrophotometric determination of total aldehyde carbonyl content in the range of 0.5 to 50 mg/kg (as acetaldehyde) in monoethylene glycol (1,2-ethanediol, MEG). Alkoxyalcohols (hemiacetals), if present, are co-determined, whereas dialkoxyalkanes (acetals), if present, are not. The results provide a measure of the purity of the sample with respect to total aldehyde carbonyl content.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard.
