The peroxidizing effect of α-tocopherol on autoxidation of methyl linoleate in bulk phase

Abstract

In order to understand the effect of α-tocopherol on the autoxidation mechanism of edible oil under storage conditions, methyl linoleate was allowed to autoxidize at 50 C in bulk phase without any radical initiator. The reaction was monitored by determining the production of four isomeric hydroperoxides (13-cis,trans; 13-trans,trans; 9-cis,trans; 9-trans… (More)
