Abstract

The resin from Boswellia serrata gumoleoresin was isolated and studied. It has a pale-yellow colour with a good lustre, but its low acid value precludes its use as a substitute for rosin in soap making and as a size. The glycerol ester of the resin gives a better performance than the parent resin...
