Research Report RR:D02-1761
An Interlaboratory Study (ILS 158-WK23046) was conducted to establish a precision statement for D2887-06a (Boiling Range Distribution of Petroleum Fractions by Gas Chromatography) in the Accelerated mode as is described in Appendix X6 ,This mode of operation results in a time savings of 50%. In addition the columns described can be used without dissolving the sample in Carbon Disulfide. Also the samples used for the precision statement included Biodiesel Mixtures in the range from 5% to 20% (B5,B10 and B20). During the balloting of the appendix it was determined that a precision statement would be required in order to validate these new mode of carrying out the method.
