Rosin Amine (Abietylamine)

Rosin amine is an ammonia derivative of rosin. It is a viscous yellow transparent liquid with ammonia and pine flavor. It retains the basic structure of rosin, with additional amine groups attached.

Rosin amine is soluble in conventional solvents, while insoluble in cold water, partly soluble in hot water. Rosin amine is mainly composed of dehydroabietylamine. It has extensive applications in the industry.
