Technical Paper -
Despite having been used for ages to protect wood against the influence of outdoor elements, the chemistry of vegetable oils within wood is poorly known. We propose a method based on solid-state magic-angle sample spinning NMR to in situ characterize oil oxidation as well as its immobilization. To eliminate signal coming from wood molecules but to keep signal from the oil, direct 13C excitation is...
