    Withdrawn Rationale:

    These test methods described standard procedures for gravimetrically determining the total nonvolatile and semi-volatile organic content of solvent extracts from soils or solid wastes.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee D34 on Waste Management, these test methods were withdrawn in May 2014. This standard is being withdrawn without replacement due to its limited use by industry.

    1. Scope

    1.1 These test methods describe standard procedures for gravimetrically determining the total nonvolatile and semi-volatile organic content of solvent extracts from soils or solid wastes. The following methods are included:

     

    Section

       Method A—Micro-Determination of TSEC

    11-13

       Method B—Evaporating Dish Procedure

    14-16

       Method C—Boiling Flask Procedure

    17-19


    1.2 These methods are used after a solvent extract is obtained from a soil or solid waste. For these methods to be applicable, the extraction solvent must have a boiling point less than that of water at ambient pressure.

    1.3 The total solvent extractable content (TSEC) of a soil, sediment, sludge, or solid waste depends upon the solvent and method used for the extraction procedure.
