Dehydroabietylamine (Leelamine)

Dehydroabietylamine (Leelamine) is a diterpene compound, derivatives from gum rosin. After a series of distillation process, the residual liquid of turpentine oil is steamed out. Then filter the residual liquid at 210℃ or so and cool and crystallize to get the finished product.

Dehydroabietylamine has a weak affinity for the cannabinoid receptors CB1 and CB2, as well as being an inhibitor of pyruvate dehydrogenase kinase. Optically active leelamine is also used as a chiral resolving agent for carboxylic acids.

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.
