Gum Rosin is a natural product from the distillation of gum- resin extracted from Pinus elliottii var. elliottii, known as Gum Rosin or simply Rosin. Its main components are isomers of Pimaran and Abietan acids.
Gum Rosin can be used as an acid using the presence of the carboxyl radical (–COOH). Its molecules have a phenanthrenic nucleus with unsaturation that allows the exploration of different types of chemical reactions.
Consists of 90% to 95% resinous acids of the pimarano and abietane types.
Friable and translucent angular fragments of amber yellow color.
Manufacture of alkyd resins, hard resins, rosin esters and
depilatory waxes, also being used in the adhesives, bubble gum, soaps, fabrics, rubbers, paints and soft drinks industries, among others.
