Reinstatement of E346-08e1 Standard Test Methods for Analysis of Methanol (Withdrawn 2017)


E346 - 08e1 covered chemical and physical tests for measuring the quality of methanol, including test methods of Acidity, Carbonizables, Color, Distillation Range, Permanganate Time, Specific Gravity, Water, Water Miscibility, Ethanol, Acetone, Trimethylamine. E346 has been withdrawn, however, it is still referenced by the International Methanol Producers and Consumers Association (IMPCA) Methanol Specification. D16 intended to reinstatement D1152 “Standard Specification for Methanol (Methyl Alcohol)”, thus E346 is needed to be reinstated and updated to adapt to the expected D1152. According to the minutes of Meeting on Jan. 24, E 346 should be rewritten and submitted for D16.14 ballot. Due to the fact that only one test method is required in E346, namely the test method for Carbonizables (also known as sulfuric acid wash), the title of E346 has been modified accordingly.
