Table 2 A comparison of relative rates of autoxidation and photo-oxygenation of oleate, linoleate and linolenate compounds (Gunstone 1996 )

From: Low temperature oxidation of linseed oil: a review

Compound Autoxidation Photo-oxygenation Ratio of relative rates of photo-oxygenation to autoxidation
Oleate 1 3 × 104 30000
Linoleate 27 4 × 104 1500
Linolenate 77 7 × 104 900
