This test method covers the determination of sulfur in organic compounds by sodium peroxide bomb ignition.
This test method is being withdrawn with no replacement due to obsolete technology and lack of interest expressed for its preservation and maintenance. The standard will be archived and retrievable from Global Engineering.
Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee E15 on Industrial and Specialty Chemicals and Subcommittee E15.01 on General Standards, this test method was withdrawn in December 2008.
1.1 This test method covers the determination of sulfur in organic compounds by sodium peroxide bomb ignition. It is intended for application to samples of organic materials containing more than 0.5 % sulfur. The presence of iron may require a separation such as is described.
1.2 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. For specific hazard statements, see 6.6.2, Section 7 and 8.3.
Note 1—A Test method baseed on an oxygen bomb combustion of petroleum products is described in Test Method D 129.
1.3 Review the current Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) for detailed information concerning toxicity, first aid procedures, and safety precautions.
