Other sources of calories include organic acids (such as acetic acid and lactic acid) and polyols (sugar alcohols such as Mannitol, Xylitol and Glycerol).
Each fat molecule is actually a group of four smaller molecules: a single glycerol molecule bonded to three long fatty acid molecules.
Other active ingredients include water, glycerol, salt, ascorbic acid (vitamin C), potassium sorbate and lemon grass.
Other drugs that are used to delay surgery are glycerol, digoxin, and isosorbide.
Iodide by the action of moist silver oxide; by the reduction of acrolein; or by heating glycerin with oxalic acid and a little ammonium chloride to 260° C. In this last reaction glycerol monoformin is produced as an intermediate product, but is decomposed as the temperature rises: C3H5(OH)3+H2C204 = C3H5(OH),.0.CHO+C02+H20 glycerol monoformin C 3 H 5 (OH) 2.0.
GLYCERIN, GLYCERINE or Glycerol (in pharmacy Glycerinum) (from Gr.
The ketone is also obtained when Bertrand's sorbose bacterium acts on glycerol; this medium also acts on other alcohols to yield ketoses; for example: erythrite gives erythrulose, arabite arabinulose, mannitol fructose, &c.
In this reaction a glycerol ester is formed as an intermediate product, and undergoes decomposition by the water which is also produced at the same time.
