New Test Method for Carbon Monoxide Chemisorption on Supported Platinum on Alumina Catalysts using Static Vacuum Method

1. Scope

The development of test methods, classifications, practices, and terminology pertaining to catalysts, zeolites and related materials used in their manufacture, and the stimulation of research related thereto. The work of this Committee will be coordinated with other ASTM Committees and other organizations having mutual interests.


chemisorption, platinum, alumina, carbon monoxide, dispersion, active, surface, area, vacuum, volumetric


Active surface area determinations are widely used in the petroleum and chemical industries. Fule cell research also utilizes similar materials and requires dispersion and active surface area determinations.

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