This test method covers the determination of carbonyls (ketones
and aldehydes) in C4 hydrocarbons. This test method was
tested on polymerization-grade 1,3-butadiene.
The applicable range for this test method is 0 mg ⁄kg to 50 mg
⁄kg carbonyls calculated as acetaldehyde.
Other C4 hydrocarbons and their mixtures besides
polymerization-grade 1,3-butadiene could be tested using this same
test method. However, the precision section of this test method
covers only carbonyls in applicable range as listed in 1.2, as
found in polymerization-grade 1,3-butadiene.
WARNING—Mercury has been designated by many
regulatory agencies as a hazardous material that can cause central
nervous system, kidney and liver damage. Mercury, or its vapor, may
be hazardous to health and corrosive to materials. Caution should
be taken when handling mercury and mercury containing products. See
the applicable product Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) for
details and EPA's website—http://www.epa.gov/mercury/faq.htm—for
additional information. Users should be aware that selling mercury
and/or mercury containing products into your state or country may
be prohibited by law.
