This European Standard specifies a procedure for the determination of dry residue in ethanol by gravimetric (desiccation) method in the range (10 to 25) mg/100 ml.

NOTE - In an interlaboratory study [2] the method described has been tested at levels down to 3,5 mg/ 100 ml, but the precision appeared to be insufficient at such low levels.
