Significance and Use

The testing procedures described in these test methods have been in use for many years and emphasize the physical properties rather than the chemical composition of dipentene. These procedures were sufficient when dipentene was used primarily as a solvent. Currently, however, dipentene finds application as a chemical raw material and a knowledge of its chemical composition is therefore important. Test Methods D 6387 describe a capillary gas chromatography method which is suitable for determining both the major and minor components found in dipentene.


1.1 These test methods cover procedures for sampling and testing dipentene and related terpene solvents, consisting chiefly of monocyclic terpene hydrocarbons distilling above the range for turpentine.

1.2 The procedures given in these test methods appear in the following order:

Sampling 4
Detection and Removal of Separated Water 5
Appearance 6
Color 7
Odor 8
Specific Gravity 9
Refractive Index10
Flash Point12

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.
