Oxidative Induction Time — A Review of DSC Experimental Effects


Over the past several years, a number of ASTM committees have explored a wide variety of experimental parameters affecting the oxidative induction time (OIT) test method in an attempt to improve its intra- and inter-laboratory precision. These studies have identified test temperature precision as a key parameter affecting OIT precision. Other parameters of importance are oxygen flow rate, specimen size, specimen pan type, oxygen pressure and catalyst effects. The work of Kuck, Bowmer, Riga, Tikuisis and Thomas are reviewed as well as the collective work of ASTM Committees E37, D2, D9 and D35.
