DEFINITION

 

 

Resin can be defined as the complex amorphous product of more or less solid characteristics which on heating first sets softened and then melt. Resins are produced and stored in the schizogenous or schizolysigenous glands or cavities of the plants. Isolated resin products which come as an unorganized crude drug in the market are more or less solid, hard, transparent, or translucent materials. Resins are insoluble in most polar and nonpolar solvents like water and petroleum ether, respectively, but dissolve completely in alcohol, solvent ether, benzene, or chloroform.
