    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This practice describes the techniques used to inject whole paint samples directly into a gas chromatograph to obtain a chromatogram from which the solvent composition may be established.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee D01 on Paint and Related Coatings, Materials, and Applications, this practice was withdrawn in June 2019 and replaced by Test Method D6886 on Determination of the Weight Percent Individual Volatile Organic Compounds in Waterborne Air-Dry Coatings by Gas Chromatography.1 This standard is being withdrawn because it: 1) lacks quantitative analysis, 2) references antiquated technology (for example, chart recorders, packed GC columns), 3) does not support mass spectrometry detection, and 4) is missing critical information, such as recommended column type, solvent type, internal standard, instrument conditions, and lacks a detailed sample preparation procedure.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This practice describes the techniques used to inject whole paint samples directly into a gas chromatograph to obtain a chromatogram from which the solvent composition may be established.2,3

    1.2 This practice is not designed to be quantitative.

    1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

    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. A specific hazard statement is given in 6.1.
