Abstract: Lac, a natural resin of insect origin, is used extensively for natural food additives, cosmetics and as a colorant for silk and cotton dyeing. Lac dye, which is the soluble part of stick lac, is composed mainly of two major anthraquinone-based components: laccaic acids A and B; the minor components, laccaic acids C, D and E, have also been isolated. The UV–VIS spectrum of laccaic acid A is very similar to the spectrum of crude laccaic acid in ethanol, with absorption maxima for laccaic acid A reported at 290, 340, 500 and 530 nm in this solvent; in water, λmax values were reported at 292 and 490nm and at 500nm in acetone for this acid (referred to as laccaic acid.
