    Significance and Use

    This test method permits measurement of the total arsenic and selenium content of coal for the purpose of evaluating these elements where they can be of concern, for example, in coal combustion. When coal samples are prepared for analysis in accordance with this test method, the arsenic and selenium are quantitatively retained and are representative of the total amounts in the coal.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers the determination of total arsenic and selenium in coal.

    1.2 &si-value;

    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.
