This invention relates to a new composition

In accordance with: the present ‘invention
rosin’ alcohols and their alcoholates and esters
may be reacted with a derivative of carbonic
acid; to produce‘rosin esters‘ of‘carbonic acid.
The rosin’ carbonates may contain two rosin

In general, the rosin alcohols and their esters
‘ and alcoholates that may be used in accordance
with this invention may be derived from ordinary
rosinw and‘ the speci?c rosin acid components
thereof as, for example, abi'etic' acid, sapinic
