    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: D6209 - 13

    Developed by Subcommittee: D22.03 | Committee D22 | Contact Staff Manager



    WK70151


    Keywords

    ambient atmospheres; analysis; gas chromatography-mass spectrometry; polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons; PAH;

    Rationale

    Review of this standard identified three items that required editorial change 1.Section 9.1.5 Currently states Positive-Displacement Rootsmeter: changed to Positive-Displacement Rotameter 2.Section 14.1.8 Currently states Injection volume1 to 3 K, changed to Injection volume1 to 3 L 3.The reference E1 Standard Specification for ASTMLiquid-in-Glass Thermometers does not appear in the text and has been removed Reviewers noted that cyclopenta(cd)pyrene, cyclopental[cd]pyrene, and retene listed in Table 1 are no longer required for US EPA programs and second sources are difficult to obtain. However as this is an international standard and these substances may be of interest to some users Table 1 is retained without change.
