Small molecule chemistry is of central importance to a number of R&D companies in diverse areas such as the pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, food flavoring, and cosmeceutical industries. In order to store and manage thousands of chemical compounds in such an environment, we have built a state-of-the-art master chemical database with unique structure(More)
Glycerol (GC, propane-1,2,3-triol), propylene glycol (PG, pro-pane-1,2-diol), and triacetin (TA, propane-1,2,3-triyl triacetate) (Figure 1) are commonly used as solvents, food additives, and humectants in the food and tobacco industries. Their use often involves high-temperature conditions, in which thermal decomposition reactions occur, exposing the human(More)
Propylene glycol and triacetin are chemical compounds, commonly used as food additives. Though the usage of the pure chemicals is not considered harmful when used as dietary supplements, little is known about the nature of their thermal degradation products and the impact they may have on human health. For these reasons, in this manuscript we investigate(More)
