Comparison of the Purity of Samples of Organic Solvents by Ultra

  • Published 2011


Studies of the uniformity of different samples of organic solvents by ultraviolet spectrophotometry are described. The procedure used is applicable to the detection of impurities originally present or formed by deterioration and to the study of the effectiveness of purification procedures. Absorption curves are given for n-heptane, 2,2,4-trimethylpentane, cyclohexane, methylcyclohexane, decahydronaphthalene, benzene, carbon tetrachloride, methyl alcohol, ethyl alcohol, ethyl acetate, and dioxane, in two or more grades of purity. The absorption curves of tetrahydronaphthalene, toluene, xylene, chlorobenzene, ethylene dichloride, trichloroethylene, acetone, dimethyldioxane, and carbon bisulfide are discussed briefly. The effect of filtration through silica gel on the ultraviolet absorption of several commercial solvents is shown. CONTENTS Page
