Aleuritic Acid is the straight-chain fatty acid part of lac resin, which generally accounts for 20% – 30%. It is obtained by saponification of shellac and soluble in low alcohols such as methyl, ethyl or isopropyl alcohol. It can be used to synthesize dihydroxyacetone and glucose laurate monoester. And it has good bonding ability to plastics.
Application & Uses
- mainly used in the perfumery industry as a starting material for the preparation of macrocyclic "musk" aroma compounds
- used as medicinal and bioactive compounds.
- used in synthesis of dihydroxyacetone, ambrettolide, civeton and Glucose Laurate, etc
- used as raw materials of prostaglandin
- used as aerospace Materials
- used as plastics with good adhesive properties
