On these strips the dish containing the glycerine is placed.
If then it is a smooth solution, nearly as thin as glycerine, it is fit for use.
For chapped hands or face: One ounce of glycerine, one ounce of alcohol mixed, then add eight ounces of rose-water.
But be careful; most of the things are only temporarily mounted—just in glycerine.
Where the glycerine is obtained from spent lye by saponifying the fats or oils with caustic alkali.
It had not been hurt by the glycerine blast that had trapped Asher.
Crusts should be reduced to a powder, and then made into a thin paste with water or glycerine.
Add a tiny pinch of carbonate of soda and two teaspoonfuls of glycerine.
The next step takes us to the explosives factory, where the glycerine is mixed with sulphuric and nitric acids.
They all consist of acids (stearic, palmitic, &c.) united with glycerine.
also glycerine, thick, colorless syrup, 1838, from French glycérine, coined by French chemist Michel-Eugène Chevreul (1786-1889), from Greek glykeros "sweet" (see glucose) + chemical ending -ine (2). So called for its sweet taste. Still in popular use, but in chemistry the substance now is known as glycerol.
glycerin glyc·er·in or glyc·er·ine (glĭs'ər-ĭn)
Glycerol or a preparation 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.
|glycerin also glycerine|
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.
