There seems to be a chemical called cyclopentadiene which, when 
it reacts with linseed-oil, makes the linseed-oil dry more quickly on 
contact with air (oxygen). Why ? How does the reaction take place and 
what are the risks ?

(Ps, I've asked this before but was referred to the medical faculty, 
which it's got nothing to do with. I've also sent this form about half 
an hour ago without any adress, sorry )
