Resin Acid

Resin Acid

 

any of the isomeric cyclic carboxylic acids with the general formula C19H29COOH. The category also includes the dihydro, tetrahydro, and dehydro derivatives—C19H31COOH, C19H33COOH, and C19H27COOH-of the acids. Resin acids are found in significant quantities in soft resin (60–65 percent), tall oil (30–60 percent), and rosin (80–95 percent), which is obtained by processing tall oil or soft resin. For example, there are nine resin acids in the soft resin of the Scotch pine, among them abietic acid and L-pimaric acid. Resin acids are used in industry usually in the form of rosin and such rosin derivatives as esters.

The topics are the use of rosin acids as rigid building blocks in the synthesis of curing agents for epoxies, preparing and characterizing epoxy binders based on rosin, thermosetting polymers based on rosin and turpentine feedstock chemicals, rosin-derived polymers and their progress in controlled polymerization, synthesizing and applying rosin-based surfactants, and the biological activity of rosin derivatives.
When flakes of softwood are exposed to heat during the press cycle, and at temperatures as low as 90 [degrees]C, losses in lignin, holocellulose, and acetyls combined with a general degradation of the hemicellulose to various sugars results in a complex mixture of acids generally described as decarboxylated rosin acids (Hawley's Condensed Chemical Dictionary 2002, Kolin and Dannon 1998).
