Drying oils, drying and semi-drying alkyds polymerize over the unsaturated bonds in the fatty acids with the oxygen in the air. If the drying of the organic coating films occurs through this mechanism, this process is called “oxidative drying”, “auto-oxidative drying” or “drying with oxygen in the air”.
