Abstract:

The object of the investigation was to develop a procedure for the determination of small amounts of petroleum contaminants in conventional brake fluids. Gas liquid chromatography GLC and thin layer chromatography TLC were utilized. The procedure is applicable to the quantitative determination of such contaminants as motor oils, gasoline, kerosene, petroleum base brake fluids and petroleum base hydraulic fluids which are detrimental to the service life of rubber components of brake systems.
