This specification the properties and requirements for regular and monomer grade 2-ethylhexanol. Specimens shall be appropriately sampled and tested to evaluate their conformance to specified values of the following physical and chemical properties: acidity (free acid as acetic acid); apparent specific gravity; assay content; color (Pt-Co scale); carbonyl as 2-ethylhexanal; ethyl methyl pentanol content; sulfuric acid color; and water content.
This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.
1.1 This specification covers regular and monomer grade 2-ethylhexanol.
1.2 The following applies to all specified limits in this standard; for purposes of determining conformance with this standard, an observed value or a calculated value shall be rounded off “to the nearest unit” in the last right-hand digit used in expressing the specification limit, in accordance with the rounding-off method of Practice E29.
1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
1.4 For specific hazard information and guidance, see the supplier's Material Safety Data Sheet for materials listed in this specification.
