Significance and Use
The testing procedures described in these test methods have been in use for many years and emphasize the physical properties of pine oil rather than its chemical composition. Test Methods D 6387 describe a capillary gas chromatography method which is suitable for determining both the major and minor components found in pine oils.
1.1 These test methods cover procedures for sampling and testing pine oils, and are applicable to both natural pine oils derived from pine stumps either by the steam and solvent process or by destructive distillation, and also to synthetic pine oils obtained by the chemical hydration of terpene hydrocarbons.
1.2 The procedures given in these test methods appear in the following order:
1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
1.4 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.
