CCl4 and CHCl3 may be present in trace amounts in liquid chlorine. The use of chlorine to purify water would then transfer these compounds to the water. Therefore, when the concentrations of the CCl4 and CHCl3 in the liquid chlorine are known, the maximum amounts contributed to the water by the chlorine can be estimated.View Less
1.1 This test method is designed for the determination of carbon tetrachloride (CCl4) and chloroform (CHCl3) in liquid chlorine. The lower limit of detection is dependent on the sample size and the instrument used; five ppm (w/w) is achievable.
1.2 Review the current material safety data sheet (MSDS) for detailed information concerning toxicity, first aid procedures, and safety precautions.
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. Specific hazards statements are given in Section 7 and in 9.2.3.
