Significance and Use
This test method provides a simpler means for the determination of the hydroxyl content of cellulose esters than the preparation and measurement of the carbanilate derivative described in Test Methods D 817 and D 871.
The hydroxyl content is an important indicator of solubility and reactivity.
1.1 This test method covers a procedure for determining the percent hydroxyl on cellulose esters by potentiometric titration. The typical range of percent hydroxyl measured is 0.7 to 10.0 %.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
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.
