Abstract (in english)
   Oxidation of predominantly aliphatic and mixed aliphatic-aromatic types of fossil organic matter from the Miocene sediments of the Sokolov Basin (Czech Republic) has been studied in a FTIR flow cell. The kinetics of oxidation of these natural specimens was followed by a transmission in-situ FTIR measurements usingf a sample in the form of a pressed, self-supprted pellet. Consumption of the CH2 and CH3 species and the formation of oxygenated products in a flow of nitrogen/oxygen 1:1 mixture was continuously monitored for 10 hours. Linear correlation between the decrease in the intensity of the 2855 cm-1 band (vCH2) and the increase in the intensity of the 1900-1550 cm-1 bands (oxygenated species) were found for both aliphatic and mixed-type organic matter. this indicated that the chemistry of the oxidation reactions during the whole experimental run did not change substantially.
   However, a detailed analysis of th IR profiles has shown preferential increase of the phenyl esters formation with the time of oxidation. Three times more alkyl species were consumed to produce the same integral intensity of the oxygen containing species during the oxidation of the aliphatic type when compared with the mixed type
