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.
