Rosinnoun

(organic chemistry) A solid form of resin, obtained from liquid resin by vaporizing its volatile components.

Resinnoun

A viscous hydrocarbon secretion of many plants, particularly coniferous trees.

Rosinnoun

Resin

Resinnoun

Any of various yellowish viscous liquids or soft solids of plant origin; used in lacquers, varnishes and many other applications; chemically they are mostly hydrocarbons, often polycyclic.

Rosinverb

(transitive) To apply rosin to (something); to rub or cover with rosin.

‘We waited expectantly as the guest violinist rosined his bow in preparation to playing.’;

Resinnoun

Any synthetic compound of similar properties.

Rosinnoun

The hard, amber-colored resin left after distilling off the volatile oil of turpentine; colophony.

Resinverb

(transitive) To apply resin to.

Rosinverb

To rub with rosin, as musicians rub the bow of a violin.

‘Or with the rosined bow torment the string.’;

Resinnoun

Any one of a class of yellowish brown solid inflammable substances, of vegetable origin, which are nonconductors of electricity, have a vitreous fracture, and are soluble in ether, alcohol, and essential oils, but not in water; specif., pine resin (see Rosin).

Rosinnoun

any of a class of solid or semisolid viscous substances obtained either as exudations from certain plants or prepared by polymerization of simple molecules

Resinnoun

Any of various polymeric substance resembling the natural resins[1], prepared synthetically; - they are used, especially in particulate form, in research and industry for their property of specifically absorbing or adsorbing substances of particular types; they are especially useful in separation processes such as chromatography; as, an ion-exchange resin.

Rosinverb

rub rosin onto;

‘rosin the violin bow’;

Resinnoun

any of a class of solid or semisolid viscous substances obtained either as exudations from certain plants or prepared by polymerization of simple molecules

Rosinnoun

resin, especially the solid amber residue obtained after the distillation of crude turpentine oleoresin, or of naphtha extract from pine stumps. It is used in adhesives, varnishes, and inks and for treating the bows of stringed instruments

‘liquid rosin flux’; ‘they will also supply crushed colophony rosin’;

Resinnoun

a sticky flammable organic substance, insoluble in water, exuded by some trees and other plants (notably fir and pine)

‘clear resin had oozed to the surface, trickled down, and set’;

Rosinverb

rub (something, especially a violin bow or string) with rosin

‘island musicians are rosining their bows’;

Resinnoun

a solid or liquid synthetic organic polymer used as the basis of plastics, adhesives, varnishes, or other products

‘epoxy resins frequently cause dermatitis’; ‘the chassis is constructed of synthetic resin’;

Rosin

Rosin (/ˈɹɒ.zən/), also called colophony or Greek pitch (Latin: pix graeca), is a solid form of resin obtained from pines and some other plants, mostly conifers, produced by heating fresh liquid resin to vaporize the volatile liquid terpene components. It is semi-transparent and varies in color from yellow to black.

Resinverb

rub or treat with resin

‘resined canvas’;

Resin

In polymer chemistry and materials science, resin is a solid or highly viscous substance of plant or synthetic origin that is typically convertible into polymers. Resins are usually mixtures of organic compounds.
