    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Describes an apparatus and method for the determining distillation characteristics of volatile organic liquids having a boiling point in the range 30 to 300 degrees C approximately and are stable during distillation in atmospheric conditions. Includes references, definitions, principle, apparatus, sampling, procedure, corrections to barometer readings, temperature corrections, expression of results and test report. Illustrates assembly of distillation apparatus, distillation flask and distillation receiver, condenser and a draught screen.
