The catalytic polymerisation of linseed oil with sulphur dioxide was investigated. The presence of small amounts of oxygen proved to be indispensable for this reaction, complete absence of oxygen resulting in an activation (conjugation) of oil without a marked increase in viscosity. Stand oil was continuously prepared on a small scale in a column at a relatively low temperature (approx. 300°C), using sulphur dioxide as a catalyst.
