|Committee on Hazard Potential of Chemicals Selecting Reference Material for Kinetic Methods and Determinations
ASTM Committee E27 on Hazard Potential of Chemicals is developing a new reference material that will provide a standard solid or liquid thermally reactive material that may be used to evaluate kinetic methods and determinations. Participants from the chemical processing, pyrotechnics and explosives industries are invited to participate in the committees upcoming meetings.
Subcommittee E27.02 on Thermal Stability and Condensed Phases desires to develop this reference material because all methods for the determination of kinetic parameters make assumptions about test specimens. A suitable reference material is needed, the committee says, for comparative evaluation methods that determine kinetic parameters.
Committee E27 next meets Oct. 21-23 in Tampa, Fla., as part of the October ASTM Committee Week. For more technical information, contact Roger Blaine, TA Instruments, New Castle, Del. (phone: 302/427-4017). For meeting or membership information, contact Scott Orthey, ASTM (phone: 610/832-9730). //
