These test methods described standard procedures for gravimetrically determining the total nonvolatile and semi-volatile organic content of solvent extracts from soils or solid wastes.
Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee D34 on Waste Management, these test methods were withdrawn in May 2014. This standard is being withdrawn without replacement due to its limited use by industry.
1.1 These test methods describe standard procedures for gravimetrically determining the total nonvolatile and semi-volatile organic content of solvent extracts from soils or solid wastes. The following methods are included:
Method A—Micro-Determination of TSEC
Method B—Evaporating Dish Procedure
Method C—Boiling Flask Procedure
1.2 These methods are used after a solvent extract is obtained from a soil or solid waste. For these methods to be applicable, the extraction solvent must have a boiling point less than that of water at ambient pressure.
