Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A novel synthetic approach for chemical modification of vegetable oils is presented. The structural modification is carried out using diethyl azodicarboxylate (DEAD) in the absence of catalyst and solvent. In a microwave oven the reaction can be achieved in 5–15 minutes. The reaction can also proceed using conventional heat, albeit for a longer time. The products are characterized by 1H, 13C, and two-dimensional NMR.
