The sample was removed before reaching the ignition temperature then cooled to room temperature in a desiccator. The volatile matter was calculated as the percentage weight loss.
Japanese standards state the limit values by the desiccator method with 4 levels of formaldehyde limit, including the average and the maximum value.
5,b shows the parameters of the insulating gaps in the initial state and after a two-week exposure (336 hours) in the desiccator. The capacitances of the gaps have increased little, but tg[delta]a has grown significantly more, and to a greater extent for wires distant from each other (the region of small partial capacitances, the left part of Fig.
The samples were then stored in desiccators with their respective salt solutions at every relative humidity value.
Methanol was added to the resulting crude material and the insoluble solid was filtered off, washed with cold methanol and dried in a desiccator. Analysis of the NMR spectra and X-ray structure of the isolated material revealed that the obtained product possessed the structure of 2,2'-(1,3-diphenylpropane-1,2-diylidene)bis(hydrazinecarboximidamide) dihydrochloride 4a.
Sample was dried in the oven at 90 - 100degC, cooled, grind, sieved (1 mm) and stored in the desiccator until used.
