    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This test method applies to the determination of sulfate sulfur and pyritic sulfur in coal and calculates organic sulfur by difference. This test method is not applicable to coke or other carbonaceous materials. Monosulfides (pyrites and FeS2 are disulfides) of iron and elements such as cadmium, lead, vanadium, and zinc can be present in coal. In the range of 0 to 100 ppm, these monosulfides do not contribute significantly to the total inorganic sulfide content

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee D05 on Coal and Coke, this test method was withdrawn in January 2021 in accordance with section 10.6.3 of the Regulations Governing ASTM Technical Committees, which requires that standards shall be updated by the end of the eighth year since the last approval date.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method applies to the determination of sulfate sulfur and pyritic sulfur in coal and calculates organic sulfur by difference. This test method is not applicable to coke or other carbonaceous materials. Monosulfides (pyrites and FeS2 are disulfides) of iron and elements such as cadmium, lead, vanadium, and zinc can be present in coal. In the range of 0 to 100 ppm, these monosulfides do not contribute significantly to the total inorganic sulfide content.

    1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard.

    1.3 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.
