AWPA A6-15 Method for the Determination of Oil-Type Preservatives and Water in Wood
: Brown Technical Book Store
This assay method is suitable for the determination of creosote, petroleum, and their solutions in treated wood when the sample contains at least 5.0 grams of wood and one gram of oil. Additives, such as copper naphthenate or pentachlorophenol, may not be quantitatively extracted by this method. The method can also be used for the determination of water in treated or untreated wood, but when it is so used, the directions on handling the sample in Standard M2 must be followed carefully.
