Significance and Use

4.1 This test method is useful for determining the formic acid content of glacial acetic acid by chemical means.

4.2 Low molecular weight organic acids (such as acetic and propionic), aldehydes (including formaldehyde and acetaldehyde), ketones, and alcohols (including methyl alcohol) do not interfere with the test.

4.3 Formic acid (and other reducing substances) may be present as a result of contamination during storage, distribution, and manufacture. This test method may be used in assessing compliance with a specification.

Scope

1.1 This test method covers the determination of the formic acid (and other reducing substances) content of glacial acetic acid by oxidation with lead tetraacetate.2

1.2 For purposes of determining conformance of an observed or a calculated value using this test method to relevant specifications, test result(s) shall be rounded off “to the nearest unit” in the last right-hand digit used in expressing the specification limit, in accordance with the rounding-off method of Practice E29.

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 For hazard information and guidance, see the supplier's Material Safety Data Sheets.

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, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

1.6 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
