ASTM D6173 Various Anionic Surfactant Actives by Potentiometric Titration
The ASTM D6173 test method explains how to determine the active matter in anionic surfactants using a potentiometric titration process. This test method eliminates the use of hazardous chloroform, the use of which is restricted for environmental and toxicological reasons.
The ASTM D6173 test method is solely used for determining the active matter in the following surfactants: alcohol ether sulfate, alpha-olefin sulfonate, alkyl benzene sulfonic acid, alcohol sulfate, sodium alkylbenzene sulfonate/sodium xylene sulfonate blend (5:1), sodium alkylbenzene sulfonate/so (22:1). Titration of various ratio mixes of sodium alkylbenzene sulfonate and sodium xylene sulfonate is also described in this test technique. This test method’s most popular anionic surfactants are widely utilized in synthetic detergents and other home cleaners.
The ASTM D6173 test method describes a potentiometric titration procedure for determining the active matter in anionic surfactants. After dissolving the anionic surfactant in water, the pH of the solution is adjusted to match the kind of anionic surfactant being tested. A surfactant electrode is used to titrate an anionic surfactant with a standard solution of Hyamine, and the reaction involves the creation of a complex between the anionic surfactant and the cationic titrant (Hyamine), which then precipitates. The surfactant electrode appears to respond to an excess of titrant at the endpoint with a large enough potential change to produce a well-defined inflection in the titration curve.
A sample of approximately 0.016 meq/4.0 mL anionic substance is utilized for the ASTM D6173 test, which is measured to the nearest 0.1 mg.
The percent actives in anionic surfactants are calculated as follows:
A = standard Hyamine 1622 solution required titration
ASTM E572 test method covers the analysis of stainless and alloy steels by Wavelength Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence Spectrometry (WDXRF). It provides rapid, multi-element determinations with sufficient accuracy to assure product quality.
The ASTM D2674 is a standard test method for the analysis of sulfochromate etches solution used in the surface preparation of aluminum. The ASTM D2674 standard specifies a method for determining the efficacy of an etchant used to prepare the surface of aluminum alloys for subsequent adhesive bonding.
An immunological method for quantization of Hevea Natural Rubber (HNRL) proteins using rabbit anti-HNRL serum. Rabbits immunized with HNRL proteins react to the majority of the proteins present, and their sera have the capability to detect most if not all the proteins in HNRL.
ASTM G65 measures the resistance of metallic materials to abrasion using the dry sand/rubber wheel apparatus. The quality, durability, and toughness of the sample are determined using this test. Metallic materials are ranked in their resistance to scratching abrasion under a controlled environment.
ASTM E2141 test methods provide accelerated aging and monitoring of the performance of time-dependent electrochromic devices (ECD) integrated in insulating glass units (IGU). This test helps to understand the relative serviceability of electrochromic glazings applied on ECD.
ASTM C724 test method is used in analyzing the quality and ease of maintenance of a ceramic decoration on architectural-type glass. This test method is useful in the acknowledgment of technical standards.
