Of the three chief by-products of alcoholic fermentation, only glycerol remains at present referable directly to the sugar.
In some cases the fatty acids are combined with other bases than glycerol.
With each increase in glycerol level, motility was reduced during the incubation period.
No glycollic acid, oxalic acid, glycol, or glycerol was produced.
It must be broken up into a fatty acid and glycerol, and saponified before it can be absorbed.
After correcting for the blank, calculate the result to glycerol.
It may be that the presence of the higher levels of glycerol at 38° C. brought about harmful metabolic activity.
The materials vary in glycerol content with the methods of preparation; especially is this the case with tallows and greases.
This mixture when heated separates into two layers, the upper one viscid and forming a sort of "glycerol," the lower clear.
From the amount of bichromate reduced calculate the percentage of glycerol.
glycerol glyc·er·ol (glĭs'ə-rôl', -rōl')
A sweet syrupy fluid obtained by the saponification of fats and fixed oils, used as a solvent, a skin emollient, and as a vehicle and sweetening agent; it is also used by injection or in suppository form for constipation and orally to reduce ocular tension.
A sweet, syrupy liquid obtained from animal fats and oils or by the fermentation of glucose. It is used as a solvent, sweetener, and antifreeze and in making explosives and soaps. Glycerol consists of a propane molecule attached to three hydroxyl (OH) groups. Also called glycerin, glycerine. Chemical formula: C3H8O3.
