Scientific Description

Resins are categorized as terpenoid or phenolic resins; terpenoid resins contain terpenoid compounds like 10-carbon monoterpenes, diterpenes (C20), sesquiterpenes (C15) and more whereas phenolic resins contain compounds such as cinnamic acid, flavonoids, etc. On the other hand, gums are complex carbohydrate polymers that include hydroxyproline-rich proteins that are either soluble, partly soluble or insoluble in water because of its co-occurrence with different secretion types and different properties of materials. Both gums and resins are produced by duct structures that have close morphological similarities between resins and gums producing ducts. Resins are classified based on the fact that diterpenoids and triterpenoids are found together and gums are limited to few plant families of Fabaceae, Sterculiaceae, and Combretaceae.
