New Test Method for Fast Peroxide Analysis of Peroxide Hydrocarbons using Flow Injection System

1. Scope

This standard describes a method for determining the concentration of trace peroxides in petroleum liquids including but not limited to 1,3-Butadiene, Styrene, Methylcyclohexane and alpha olefins. This test method is not applicable for the determination of trace peroxides in carbonyl compounds.


Peroxide, 1,3 Butadiene, Styrene, alpha olefins


This is a proposed IP method that is used by many customers in many countries as it is more accurate and much faster than current gravimetric techniques.

The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
