Daicel’s Polyglycerols properties

  • Our polyglycerols (PGLs) are a hydrophilic polymer with a highly branched structure, and we have a variety of products with different degrees of polymerization.
  • Our PGLs are made from Glycidol. Compared to the glycerin condensation method product, our PGLs have fewer cyclic compounds, are colorless, transparent and completely water-soluble.
  • Our PGLs have many primary hydroxyl groups and have a highly branched structure. They are easily to be modified chemically.

Differences in molecular weight distribution with other companies’ products

The following analysis shows that our PGLs have a narrower molecular weight distribution and a lower content of cyclic compounds than the glycerin thermal condensation method products.

Water Solubility

Since our PGLs have few cyclic compounds and are highly water-soluble, they do not become cloudy even after being left at room temperature for 1 month and remain transparent.
