Applications

Useful as a cryoprotectant.Glycerol is evolved in the storage and concentration of enzymes. It plays a vital role in sample preparation and gel formation for polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. It is also used to aid in casting gradient gels, protein stabilizer and storage buffer component. Further, it is used as a solvent, emollient, pharmaceutical agent and sweetening agent.

Notes

Hygroscopic. Incompatible with perchloric acid, lead oxide, acetic anhydride, nitrobenzene, chlorine, peroxides, strong acids and strong bases.
