STANDARD SALT SOLUTIONS FOR HUMIDITY CALIBRATION Saturated aqueous solutions of inorganic salts are convenient secondary standards for calibration of instruments for measure- ment of relative humidity. The International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry has recommended salt solutions for cali- brations in the range of 10% to 90% relative humidity, and the American Society for Testing and Materials has published similar standards. The data in this table are taken from the IUPAC recom- mendations, except for K 2 CO 3 and K 2 SO 4 , which are ASTM rec- ommendations. Details on the preparation and use of these standards may be found in References 1 and 2. Data for other salts are given in Reference 3. References 1. Marsh, K.
