Standard Test Method for Purity of Hydrocarbons from Freezing Points
|Publication Date:||1 November 2005|
|ICS Code (Organic chemicals in general):||71.080.01|
This test method covers the sampling and determination of purity of essentially pure compounds for which the freezing points for zero impurity and cryoscopic constants are given.2 The compounds to which the test method is applicable are: (Warning-Extremely flammable liquids and liquefied gases.)
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values in parentheses are for information only.
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. For specific hazard statements, see Sections 1, 6, 8, and 10 - 26.
NOTE 1-This test method covers systems in which the impurities form with the major component a substantially ideal or sufficiently dilute solution, and also systems which deviate from the ideal laws, provided that, in the latter case, the lowering of the freezing point as a function of the concentration is known for each most probable impurity in the given substance.
2 Numerical constants in this test method were taken from the most recently published data appearing in "Tables of Physical and Thermodynamic Properties of Hydrocarbons and Related Compounds," or ASTM DS 4A, Physical Constants of Hydrocarbons C1 to C10, or both, prepared by the American Petroleum Institute, Research Project 44.
