(Isopropylidene glycerol), CAS 100-79-8 – non-GMO / vegan - high grade

For various industrial applications

Isopropylidene glycerol exclusively from biogenic glycerin
previously obtained from GMO-free raw materials.


Isopropylidene glycerol is a primary alcohol that can be formally described as a cyclic ether-substituted methanol.

These two groups of different polarity, the molecule shows both affinity for polar, especially OH-containing compounds, but also to less polar and non-polar substances. Most notable is the perfect miscibility with water. At the same time, however, Isopropylidene glycerol is also miscible with virtually all organic substance groups. For these reasons, it is particularly suitable as a universal solvent for a variety of applications.

In lacquers and inks, printing inks, adhesives, pesticides, detergents and cleaners, metal cleaners, emulsions, and dispersions are the most important industrial applications.

For example, Isopropylidene glycerin is compatible with acrylate, epoxy, and alkyd resins as well as with polyurethanes and polyesters. As a vehicle for perfume oils, it is also suitable.

Due to the hydroxyl group, the molecule can also participate as a raw material in a variety of chemical reactions. In condensation reactions with elimination of water, Isopropylidene glycerol can be incorporated as a reaction partner in polyesters, polyacrylates and polyethers, etc. Anhydrides and acids are used to form esters.
