To investigate the effect of heating conditions on the polymerization of methyl linoleate, the esters were heated at $60^{\circ}C,\;90^{\circ}C,\;120^{\circ}C$ and $150^{\circ}C$, respectively, with sparging oxygen for different periods of time. On the basis of the peroxide curve obtained at each of the four temperatures, four heating times were chosen for the analysis of the polymers and total oxidation products. Significant linear relationships were found between polymer contents and total oxidation product contents. The contents of polymers and their linkage types were analyzed by High Performance Size Exclusion Chromatography. The polymers formed at four temperatures were qualitatively identified as dimers. The dimers with peroxide linkages were detected from methyl linoleate oxidized at $60^{\circ}C\;and\;90^{\circ}C$ but they were not detected from methyl linoleate oxidized at $120^{\circ}C\;and\;150^{\circ}C$. Therefore, all dimers formed at $120^{\circ}C\;and\;150^{\circ}C$ seemed to be the ones with ether linkage or carbon to carbon linkage. The degradation rate of the dimers with peroxide linkages at $90^{\circ}C$ was faster than at $60^{\circ}C$.
