The paper presents the applicability of oxyreactive thermal analysis (OTA) for the investigation of different kinds of resins both natural (recent and fossil) and synthetic. For comparative reasons and a more precise interpretation, along with OTA infrared spectroscopy was used as a method commonly applied for the investigation of fossil resins. The results obtained prove that the OTA method may be very useful for diversification of different kinds of resins. The parameter most valuable for the preliminary characteristics of resins and the evaluation of their transformation was found to be the mass loss recorded on TG curves in three definite temperature ranges.
