Description: Rosin is a natural polymer of the terpene abietic acid. It is soluble in alcohol and turpentine, but insoluble in water. Rosin spirit is obtained by distilling rosin with alcohol. Rosin oils are obtained by distilling rosin with petroleum ether or benzene. They are used as solvents for varnishes, paints, lacquers, printing inks, and rubber compounds. Resin acids and derivatives thereof are used in the manufacture of dyes, perfumes, pharmaceuticals, and agricultural chemicals. Run gums are the residue left after rosin has been distilled from wood.
