4.1 Bisphenol A is used for production of polycarbonate or epoxy resin. The presence of impurities in bisphenol A is undesirable because they may slow down the polymerization and be impurities in the final product.
4.2 Determination of the trace impurities, such as isomer of bisphenol A and the unreacted raw material, is often required. This test method is suitable for setting specifications and for using as an internal quality control where these products are produced or used.
4.3 Purity is commonly reported by subtracting the determined expected impurities and water from 100 %. However, a HPLC analysis cannot determine absolute purity if unknown components are contained within the material being examined.View Less
1.1 This test method covers the determination of trace impurities in bisphenol A (4,4′-Isopropylidene
1.2 This method is applicable to bisphenol A samples containing impurity concentration between 2 and 400 mg/kg. Users of this method believe it is linear over a wider range.
1.3 In determining the conformance of the test results using this method to applicable specification, results shall be rounded off in accordance with the rounding-off method of Practice E29.
1.4 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
1.5 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, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. For a specific hazard statement, see Section 8.
1.6 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
