Description / Abstract:

This test method2 covers the determination by high ionizing voltage, low resolution mass spectrometry of 18 aromatic hydrocarbon types and 3 aromatic thiophenotypes in straight run aromatic petroleum fractions boiling within the range from 205 °C to 540 °C (400 °F to 1000 °F) (corrected to atmospheric pressure). Samples must be nonolefinic, must contain not more than 1 % by mass of total sulfur, and must contain not more than 5 % nonaromatic hydrocarbons. Composition data are in volume percent.

NOTE 1—Although names are given to 15 of the compound types determined, the presence of other compound types of the same empirical formulae is not excluded. All other compound types in the sample, unidentified by name or empirical formula, are lumped into six groups in accordance with their respective homologous series.

The values stated in acceptable SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are provided for information purposes only. 1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
