    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers the determination of water in phenol and related materials such as cresols, xylenols, naphthalene, pyridine, and quinoline.

    1.2 This test method has been found applicable to a variety of materials varying in water content from 100 mg/kg to solutions containing a relatively high percent of water.

    1.3 The following applies to all specified limits in this standard: 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 in expressing the specification limit in accordance with the rounding-off method of Practice E 29.

    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. For specific hazard statements, see Section 9.
