What is Methyl Abietate?

Methyl rosinate, also known as methyl abietate, is a product derived from the esterification of rosin resin acid, with abietic acid being its primary component.

Rosin-based resin acid compounds are natural products with a diverse range of physiological activities and medicinal value. Methyl rosinate has the ability to enhance oil solubility, cell penetration, and biological activity.

Methyl Abietate Uses

  1. Methyl Abietate is a versatile ingredient found in a wide range of products including air care products, perfumes, pharmaceuticals, polishes, waxes, washing and cleaning products, as well as cosmetics and personal care products.
  2. Methyl Abietate pharmaceutical application value is significant, as it can enhance oil solubility, cell penetration, and biological activity of medications.

Methyl Abietate Preparation

Pour 30 mL of organic solvent DMF into a 250 mL three-neck flask equipped with a stirrer, thermometer, and reflux condenser. Then, add 0.05 mol (15.0 g) of abietic acid and 0.5 mol (45.0 g) of the methyl esterification reagent dimethyl carbonate C3H6O3, along with 0.1 mol (4.2 g) of the alkaline catalyst lithium hydroxide LiOH·H2O. Dissolve the abietic acid, dimethyl carbonate, and lithium hydroxide in DMF, and heat to stable reflux at 93°C in a 100°C oil bath under nitrogen protection. Use thin layer chromatography to monitor the reaction progress every hour until completion. This process takes 46 hours.

After the reaction, pour the contents into a beaker with 600 mL of deionized water, adjust the pH to neutral with a 3.5% hydrochloric acid solution, and extract with 50 mL of methylene chloride. Repeat the extraction three times and combine the organic phases. Dry the organic layer with anhydrous sodium sulfate and evaporate the methylene chloride with a rotary evaporator to obtain crude methyl abietate.

The crude product is then subjected to column chromatography using 100% petroleum ether for gradient elution to obtain 15.6g of the product methyl abietate, with a yield of 99.6%. The molecular formula is C21H32O2, with a molecular weight of 316.2. It is a light yellow transparent viscous liquid, soluble in various organic solvents but insoluble in water. NMR data shows characteristic peaks at various chemical shifts.
