Theme Article deals with the use of infrared spectrometry (ATR method) to analyze oxidation, because oxidation plays a role in the self-ignition of oils. As samples were used – sunflower oil, linseed oil. Aim experiment to verify that the infrared spectrometry modified by the ATR method is suitable for the evaluation of the oxidation of liquid substances. Verification of the suitability of the method was performed by comparing the data obtained during the measurement of this experiment with the data verified in other publications. Subsequently, the influence of temperature and time on the oxidation assumed was investigated.
