ASTM WK39468

    New Test Method for Analysis of Cyclohexane by Gas Chromatography (Effective Carbon Number)

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: D16.01 | Committee D16 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Scope

    This test method has been found applicable to the measurement of impurities found in cyclohexane. The impurities can be analyzed over a range of 1 to 400 mg/kg by this method, but may be applicable to a wider range.


    effective carbon number:ECN


    D16 believes that effective carbon number will reduce the variability of results between laboratories and will reduce the work in laboratories. This standard will be used to determine the purity of cyclohexane for process control and specifications.
