Polyglycerol dendron functionalized cyclodextrins ([beta]-CD-g-PG) are novel carriers which can be synthesized by controlled anionic polymerization of glycidol. The Hyperbranched Cyclodextrins (HBCD) are small sized, well-defined polymers with higher water solubility, oxidative stability and biocompability.

1-Monocaproin, a 1-monoacylglycerol, was synthesized with the reaction of glycidol by chromium-caproic fatty acid complexes and was found to be amphiphilic in nature.
As far as the article reported, the chemical compositions were firstly obtained by simultaneous distillation and extraction (SDE) and analyzed by GC-MS, in which thirty-one compounds representing 93.8% of the essential oil were found with main components such as P,P,P-triphenyl phosphine imide (35.3%), bis(1-methylethyl)peroxide (16.4%), 1-methyl-1H-pyrrole (5.2%), 3,3,6-trimethyl-1,5-heptadien-4-one (4.7%), 1H-pyrrole (3.9%), 4-ethenyl-2-methoxy-phenol (3.9%), 2-[beta]-pinene (3.5%), 3-(1-methylethyl)phenol (2.0%), formic acid n-pentyl ester (2.0%), glycidol (1.7%), and phenol (1.6%).
The hyperbranched polyglycerol, (BPG), was synthesized through anionic ring-opening polymerization from glycidol using 1-butanol as the starting material.
In the human digestion tract, fatty acid esters of MCPD and glycidyl esters can release 3-MCPD and glycidol, respectively.
To obtain coatings with good flexibility, several GC resins were synthesized using linear and cycloaliphatic diisocyanates and a combination of diols and triol with glycidol. The coatings were characterized to determine their flexibility, as well as chemical resistance, hardness, thermal stability, and corrosion resistance.
HPG-grafted magnetic iron oxide nanoparticles have been prepared by surface-initiated anionic polymerization of glycidol. Iron oxide nanoparticles were first functionalized with 3-mercaptopropyltrimethoxysilane that, in the anionic form, promotes the ring opening polymerization of glycidol in toluene.
