    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This test method describes the determination of assay and impurities in acetic anhydride by gas chromatography. The acetic anhydride should be at least 95 % pure.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee D16 on Aromatic, Industrial, Specialty and Related Chemicals, this test method was withdrawn in March 2017 in accordance with section 10.6.3 of the Regulations Governing ASTM Technical Committees, which requires that standards shall be updated by the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.
