    Standard Test Methods for Low Concentrations of Diethlyene Glycol in Ethylene Glycol by Gas Chromatography (Withdrawn 2020)

    Withdrawn Rationale:

    These test methods are intended primarily for the analysis of mixtures of ethylene and diethylene glycols in which the diethylene glycol concentration is 0.1 % or less. Both test methods should be applicable to higher concentrations of diethylene glycol, but precision and bias estimates have been obtained only for 0.05 to 0.1 % diethylene glycol.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee D16 on Aromatic, Industrial, Specialty and Related Chemicals, these test methods were withdrawn in October 2020 and replaced by Test Method D8311 for Impurities in Monoethylene Glycol by Gas Chromatography with Normalization.1

    1. Scope

    1.1 These test methods are intended primarily for the analysis of mixtures of ethylene and diethylene glycols in which the diethylene glycol concentration is 0.1 % or less. Both test methods should be applicable to higher concentrations of diethylene glycol, but precision and bias estimates have been obtained only for 0.05 to 0.1 % diethylene glycol.

    Note 1: Test Methods E202 describe another gas chromatographic test method applicable to mixtures of ethylene, diethylene, and triethylene glycols and mixtures of propylene, dipropylene, and tripropylene glycols in which one of the glycols is the principal component and the other two are present in concentrations of 0.1 to 1 % each.

    Note 2: Test Method E2409 describes another gas chromatographic test method for the determination of glycol impurities in mono-, di-, tri- and tetraethylene glycol (MEG, DEG, TEG and TeEG) in the range of 5 to 3000 μg/g.

    1.2 The two test methods are given as follows:

     

    Sections

    Test Method A—Nonderivative Method

    5 to 13

    Test Method B—Derivative Method

    14 to 22

    1.3 Review the current Safety Data Sheets (SDS) for detailed information concerning toxicity, first aid procedures, and safety precautions for chemicals used in this standard.

    1.4 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard with the exception of foot-pound units for apparatus descriptions.

    1.5 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. For a specific warning statement, see 15.1.5.
