    Abstract

    The integrated methods approach to the analysis of the kerosine and gas oil fractions (boiling range 400 to 650 F, C11 to C20) of petroleum is described. The authors show that any well-staffed laboratory with the proper instrumentation can analyze these hydrocarbons to the point of identifying individual components. However, they also point out that there are still questions concerning the reproducibility of these methods. Before these methods can be used in commercial contractual agreements, they must be standardized and have their precision established.
