An investigation of the drying properties of the lead, manganese, and cobalt soaps of tung oil
Metadata[+] Show full item record
Lead, manganese, and cobalt linoleates are well known "driers" of linseed oil, and the drying properties of oils boiled with litharge and manganese dioxide are thought due, at least in part, to the formation of linoleates in the oil. Because of the isomerism existing between linoletic acid, and alpha-elaeostearic acid, and also because of the rapid drying properties of the tung oil, the following investigation was undertaken: 1. the preparation and purification of the elaeostearates of lead, manganese, and cobalt; 2. a study of the "drying" properties of these soaps dissolved in linseed oil as compared with standard driers, e.g., litharge and manganese dioxide.
