Significance and Use
This test method is suitable for determining the quantity of aldehydes, both for quality control and quality assurance of the product.
1.1 This test method covers the wet chemical determination of aldehydes in styrene monomer. Aldehydes are calculated and reported as benzaldehyde. The range of concentration for this test method is 0.001 % to 0.030 %.
1.2 In determining conformance of the test results using this method to applicable specifications, results shall be rounded off in accordance with the rounding-off method of Practice E 29.
1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
