Abstract

The industrial process for manufacturing aleuritic acid from seed lac poses certain problems like the long saponification period, need for reprocessing the crude product and the inevitable loss during this step. Some improvements are suggested to overcome these problems and get threo - aleuritic acid of 92% purity in an optimised yield of 23%. A GC assay procedure for determining its purity is developed.
