A review of studies, published in peer-reviewed journals and articles available as technical reports of various organizations, regarding benzene in gasoline and crude oil was performed.

The summarized data will be useful for retrospective exposure assessments in epidemiological studies. It shows that in the past, benzene in gasoline has been quite high, but now, there is a distinct trend in North America and Europe to reduce benzene in gasoline.

The method involves the analysis using capillary column for Fast-HRGC, however this method requires the use of deuterated internal standards that are extremely expensive; ASTM Method D describes the determination of benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, p/m-xylene, o-xylene, C 9 and heavier aromatics in finished gasoline.

This method presents a bad chromatographic profile.

Aromatics in Finished Gasoline by Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry, Vol,[6] IP /96 Determination of Benzene Content of Petrol – Gas Chromatography Method [7] EN Liquid petroleum products – Unleaded petrol – Determination of benzene.

This test method covers the determination of benzene and toluene in finished motor and aviation spark ignition fuels by gas chromatography. This test method has two procedures: Procedure A uses capillary column gas chromatography and Procedure B uses packed column gas chromatography.

Procedures A and B have separate precisions. Maximum allowable concentrations for benzene and total aromatic hydrocarbon are and 40 weight percent (wt %) respectively.

This latter method uses a gas chromatograph (GC) equipped with a valve system and two packed columns (OV and TCEP) to analyze benzene and toluene in gasoline.

In part one of the sequence, we will use gas chromatographic separation of the components of gasoline with mass spectrometric detection of specific compounds (a.k.a. GC/MS) to determine the benzene content in a gasoline sample from a local station. Determination of Benzene in Commercial Gasoline A Thesis (Classic Reprint) Posted on by vede | Leave a comment.

It is sometimes abbreviated PhH. Benzene is a colorless and highly flammable liquid with a sweet smell, and is partially responsible for the aroma around petrol (gasoline) stations.

It is used primarily as a precursor to the manufacture of chemicals with more complex structure, such as ethylbenzene and cumene, of which billions of kilograms are produced annually. Benzene — Prohibition 3 (1) Effective July 1, and subject to sect no primary supplier shall supply gasoline that contains benzene at a concentration that exceeds % by volume.

(2) No person shall sell or offer for sale gasoline that contains benzene at a concentration that exceeds % by volume. (1) Except as specified in paragraph (c) of this section, a refinery's or importer's average gasoline benzene concentration in any annual averaging period shall not exceed volume percent.

(2) Compliance with the standard specified in paragraph (a)(1) of this section, or creation of a deficit in accordance with paragraph (c) of this section, is determined in accordance with § (a). Popular Uses of Benzene. Moving on, Benzene has a lot of uses in different fields.

Benzene is a widely used industrial chemical and is a major part of gasoline. Some other uses of Benzene include making plastics, synthetic fibres, rubber lubricants, dyes, resins, detergents, drugs and more.

Some popular one are mentioned and discussed below. Determination of Benzene in Reformulated Gasoline The amount of benzene in gasoline is a concern because it is a known human carcinogen, and exposure to it has been linked to detrimental health effects.

The challenge with the analysis lies in the complex composition of gasoline, which consists of hundreds of different compounds. Benzene is a liquid that smells like gasoline, boils at 80°C, and freezes at °C. It is the aromatic hydrocarbon produced in the largest volume. It was formerly used to decaffeinate coffee and was a significant component of many consumer products, such as paint strippers, rubber cements, and home dry-cleaning spot removers.

This test method compares favorably with Test Method D (FIA) for the determination of total olefins in motor gasolines. It does not require any sample preparation, has a comparatively short analysis time of about 10 min, and is readily automated. Alternative methods for determination of olefins in gasoline include Test Methods D and.

“Benzene content in gasoline is going to go significantly down everywhere in the country,” said William Wehrum, the agency’s acting assistant administrator of air and radiation programs.

We developed SLB-ILD, a capillary gas chromatography (GC) column engineered for the determination of benzene (and other aromatics) and oxygenates in gasoline. Table 1 lists its specifications. It is a modified (inert) version of SLB-IL, a GC column that employs an imidazolium dicationic ionic liquid stationary phase.

The national benzene content of gasoline today is about vol%. (Gasoline sold in California is not covered because California had already implemented standards similar to those EPA established under the MSAT program.) The regulations include a nationwide credit.

light oils, gasoline, naphtha, fuel oil #l, and fuel oil #2 have been fractioned off. Fuel oil #6 can be blended directly to heavy fuel oil or made into asphalt. It is limited to commercial and industrial uses where sufficient heat is available to fluidize the oil for pumping.

ods for the analysis of aromatics in gasoline. ASTM D [4] employs gas chromatography/mass spec-troscopy (GC/MS) for the analysis of benzene, toluene, and total aromatic content in gasoline. ASTM D [5] is a GC method for the analysis of benzene and toluene in finished motor and avia-tion gasoline, but this method is unable to analyze.

Determination of Oxygenates, Benzene, Toluene, C8–C12 Aromatics and Total Aromatics in Finished Gasoline by Gas Chromatography/Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy1 This standard is issued under the fixed designation D ; the number immediately following the designation indicates the year of.

Benzene vs Gasoline. Benzene. Benzene only has carbon and hydrogen atoms arranged to give a planar structure. It has the molecular formula of C 6 H 6.

Its structure and some of the properties are as follows. Molecular weight: 78 g mole Boiling point: o C. Melting point: o C. Density: g cm ASTM D, Edition, December 1, - Standard Test Method for Determination of Benzene, Toluene, Ethylbenzene, p/m-Xylene, o-Xylene, C9 and Heavier Aromatics, and Total Aromatics in Finished Gasoline by Gas Chromatography This test method covers the determination of benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, the xylenes, C 9 and heavier aromatics, and total aromatics in finished motor gasoline.

The EPA limits the percentage of benzene allowed in gasoline to an average of % by volume (with a maximum of %). The EPA limits concentrations of benzene in drinking water to 5 ppb (parts per billion). Some states may have lower limits. Likewise, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) sets a limit of 5 ppb in bottled water.

Benzene is a solid below 42°F (°C). DESCRIPTION: Benzene is used to make chemicals used in the manufacture of industrial products such as dyes, detergents, explosives, pesticides, synthetic rubber, plastics, and pharmaceuticals.

Benzene is found in gasoline and trace amounts are found in. An experimental and computational protocol was established for the simultaneous determination of several key gasoline properties from a single Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) spectrum.

The study has shown that midband FT-IR spectroscopy combined with multivariate calibration analysis is a versatile, efficient, and accurate technique for the simultaneous estimation of key gasoline properties.

Decem New Guidance on Fuel/Water Mixtures. Unused commercial chemical products listed in § that are themselves fuels, including those that are normal components of fuels (e.g., benzene, toluene, and xylene), are not solid wastes if they are burned for energy recovery.

[§(c)(2)(ii), RO ] EPA has indicated in previous guidance that this. Therefore, to measure benzene in reformulated gasoline, it must be resolved from the aliphatic hydrocarbons, other aromatics, ethanol, plus any other oxygenates.

This typically requires the use of a two-column switching procedure We developed SLB-ILD specifically for the determination of benzene, other aromatics, and oxygenates in gasoline.•Catalytic reforming 2nd to FCC in commercial importance to refiners Reformate desirable component for gasoline High octane number, low vapor pressure, very low sulfur levels, & low olefins concentration US regulations on levels of benzene, aromatics, & olefins •Air quality concerns 8.The price of a liter of service gasoline is 46 SDG, and benzene is 56 SDG, while the price of a liter of commercial gasoline is SDG and SDG for benzene.
