Historical (view previous versions of standard)
This specification covers a grade of benzene known as refined benzene-535. Different tests shall be performed in order to determine the following properties of refined benzene-535: minimum purity, maximum toluene content, maximum sulfur content, maximum thiophene content, maximum nonaromatic hydrocarbon content, maximum nitrogen content, water content, maximum acid wash color, appearance, maximum color, 1,4 dioxane content, and minimum solidification point with anhydrous basis.
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.
1.2 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.
