Gum rosin contains a large proportion of resins acids and fatty acids. The rosin derivative – rosin nitrile, which is prepared by the processes of ammonification and dehydration. And then rosin nitrile is reacted with hydrogen to prepare rosin amine.
According to the different of rosin materials, there have rich types of rosin amine, they include gum rosin amine, disproportionated rosin amine. polymerized rosin amine, hydrogenated rosin amine, etc. It appears lightly yellow color and has woody, ammonia smell. It is soluble in organic solvents, such as alcohols, ethers or hydrocarbons. Due to the amphipathic molecule feature, through the modification process, rosin amine can be prepared to anionic surfactants, cationic surfactants, nonionic surfactants and amphoteric surfactants.
