Test Method for Determination of Free and Total Glycerine in B-100 Biodiesel Methyl Esters by Gas Chromatography
|Publication Date:||10 August 2000|
|ICS Code (Liquid fuels):||75.160.20|
1.1 This test method provides for the quantitative determination of free and total glycerin in B-100 methyl esters by gas chromatography. The range of detection for free glycerin is 0.005 to 0.05 mass %, and total glycerin from 0.05 to 0.5 mass %. This procedure is not applicable to vegetable oil methyl esters obtained from lauric oils, such as coconut oil and palmkernel oil.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard.
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.
