    Soybean oil will become waxy when exposed to the air for a long time. This is because the soybean oil is cross-linked. The long-chain fatty acids in soybean oil contain about 5 double bonds. The double bonds are exposed to the air and easily react with oxygen. , The formation of peroxide, the peroxide is unstable, and the chain is broken to form two oxygen-free radicals. Waxy, it becomes a paint film after a long time. This is the same as tung oil as a varnish. Tung oil contains more double bonds, so it is easier to crosslink and cure. Usually, a layer of tung oil is brushed on the wood, and the group is It becomes a transparent paint film and cures faster at high temperatures. This is the reason why some vegetable oils can be used as paints. Because of the lower double bond content, soybean oil cures slower than tung oil, but it can be cured after a long time.
