Significance and Use
These test methods determine the amount of moisture contained in a cellulose sample which determines the amount of bone dry cellulose present in a sample. The actual amount of cellulose in a sample is an essential entity when using cellulose as a starting material for the production of cellulose derivatives.
1.1 These test methods cover the determination of moisture in cellulose using two oven-drying procedures and one Karl Fischer procedure.
1.2 The test procedures appear in the following order:
|Test Method A—Specimen Weighed in Oven||4-10|
|Test Method B—Specimen Weighed Outside of Oven||11-17|
|Test Method C—Karl Fischer Method||18-25|
1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
1.4 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.
