|Spanish term or phrase: alcohol tetrahidroabietilico...|
Mezcla de alcohol tetrahidroabietilico alcohol dihidroabietílico y alcohol dehidroabietílico.
Also, is there a difference between DIhidroabietilico and DEhidroabietilico, or could this be some kind of error. I only find the DIhidro... version in my chemistry dictionary. Thanks for the help!
|tetra-, di-, and dehydroabietyl alcohol|
de and di are just 2 different forms based on the degree of hydrogenation or carbons. they are different compounds, and both exist.
Note: this is different than the hydroabietic acids, which are a different form altogether and are not what your text is referring to here.
dehydroabietyl alcohol is also known as "abitol"
but this site (http://www.neurodermitis.de/english/allergens/c_Abitol.htm) defines abitol as:
Abitol®, a mixture of different hydroabietyl alcohols, belongs in the broadest sense to the group of adhesives. It is used, for example, in cosmetics, especially mascara.
Moreover, it can be found in adhesives which are used for plaster, adhesive tapes and similar products."
dihydroabietyl alcohol can be a food additive.
