The Oil of Maize (Zea Mays) (Classic Reprint) by Harriet Winfield

Excerpt from The Oil of Maize (Zea Mays)

The work reported in this dissertation was undertaken with the idea of investigating the many conflicting statements as to the properties of maize oil and of furnishing a more complete and consistent record of both its physical and chemical constants than has been heretofore obtainable.

This record has been made as complete as possible and covers many points on which little work seems to have been done by other investigators. The results obtained differ in several important particulars from those previously reported and offer ready means for the identification of the oil.

During the course of the investigation, a method, which is believed to be new, was devised for improving the oil for com mercial purposes. This method frees the oil from odor and taste and relieves it of its excess of free acid, at the same time rendering the oil more stable and improving its drying qualities.
