Rubber seeds Pre-treatment (PT) at 60 °C for 3 days, seeds stored in a crate (50 × 30 cm), in layers of 18 cm at 27 °C Humidity, temperature, moisture content, oil content (after Soxhlet extraction), acid value (after isolation)
RSO Stored in a closed container at 27 °C Acid value
RSO ethyl esters Stored in a closed container at 27 °C Acid value
