ASTM WK83989

Withdrawal of D2505-88(2015) Standard Test Method for Ethylene, Other Hydrocarbons, and Carbon Dioxide in High-Purity Ethylene by Gas Chromatography


This standard is being balloted for withdrawal with no replacement as the column materials listed in the method are no longer commercially available. User surveys show that there are not enough instruments of this type still in use to perform a new interlaboratory study with alternative column materials. Equivalent results for the carbon dioxide measurement can be achieved using ASTM D8098-17 - Standard Test Method for Permanent Gases in C2 and C3 Hydrocarbon Products by Gas Chromatography and Pulse Discharge Helium Ionization Detector. Equivalent results for the hydrocarbon measurements can be achieved using ASTM D6159-17 - Standard Test Method for Determination of Hydrocarbon Impurities in Ethylene by Gas Chromatography.
