Glycerol also called glycerine is a simple polyol compound. It is a colorless, odorless, viscous liquid that is sweet-tasting and non-toxic. The glycerol backbone is found in lipids known as glycerides.it is also used as a bacterial culture medium. It can be used as an effective marker to measure liver disease. It is also widely used as a sweetener in the food industry and as a humectant in pharmaceutical formulations. Owing to the presence of three hydroxyl groups, glycerol is miscible with water and is hygroscopic in nature.
Glycerin, with the ointment or suppository, can be used as pharmaceutical preparation, solvent, moisture adsorbent, and antifreeze and sweetener in medicine; it can be used as alkyd resin, polyester resin, and epoxy resin in coating industry; it can be used as moisture adsorbent, anti-shrinkage agent, dispersant in textile and dyeing and printing industry; it can be used as sweetener, moisture adsorbent of tobacco, and solvent in food industry. Nitroglycerin, obtained with glycerin, can be used as explosives materials. Moreover, it can be used in papermaking, cosmetic, leather, printing, photo and metal processing.

Like ethylene glycol and propylene glycol, glycerol is a non-ionic kosmotrope that forms strong hydrogen bonds with water molecules, competing with water-water hydrogen bonds. This interaction disrupts the formation of ice. The minimum freezing point temperature is about −36 °F (−38 °C) corresponding to 70% glycerol in water.
Glycerol was historically used as an anti-freeze for automotive applications before being replaced by ethylene glycol, which has a lower freezing point. While the minimum freezing point of a glycerol-water mixture is higher than an ethylene glycol-water mixture, glycerol is not toxic and is being re-examined for use in automotive applications.
Glycerol is used by the film industry when filming scenes involving water to stop areas from drying out too quickly.
Research on uses
Research has been conducted to produce value-added products from glycerol obtained from biodiesel production. Examples (aside from combustion of waste glycerol):
Hydrogen gas production.
Glycerine acetate is a potential fuel additive.
Glycerol is one of the most used additive for starch thermoplastic.
Conversion to propylene glycol.
Conversion to acrolein.
Conversion to ethanol.
Conversion to epichlorohydrin, a raw material for epoxy resins.
