Developed by Subcommittee: D16.04
WITHDRAWN, NO REPLACEMENT
This test method covers the determination of sulfur in aromatic hydrocarbons, their derivatives and related chemicals having typical sulfur concentrations from 0.005 to 10 mg/kg.
Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee D16 on Aromatic Hydrocarbons and Related Chemicals, this test method was withdrawn in August 2008 in accordance with section 10.5.3.1 of the Regulations Governing ASTM Technical Committees, which requires that standards shall be updated by the end of the eighth year since the last approval date.
1.1 This test method covers the determination of sulfur in aromatic hydrocarbons, their derivatives and related chemical having typical sulfur concentrations from 0.005 to 10 mg/kg.
1.2 This test method may be extended to higher concentrations by dilution.
1.3 This test method is applicable to aromatic hydrocarbons such as benzene, toluene, cumene, p-xylene, o-xylene, cyclohexane, phenol, cresols, xylenols, and other aromatic or oxygenated aromatic compounds.
1.4 The following applies to all specified limits in this test method: 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 for expressing the specification limit in accordance with the rounding-off method of Practice E 29.
1.5 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, 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. specific precautionary statements are given in 7./5, 76. 8, 11.4.
