Quo Vadis natural glycerine?
Glycerine at room temperature is a colorless, odorless,
viscous, hygroscopic, and slightly sweet-tasting liquid.
Glycerine was discovered in 1779, at a time when chemistry
began to develop into a serious science, by Carl Wilhelm
Scheele, a pharmacist and chemist of German origin
and residing in Sweden, who isolated and examined
a number of chemical compounds, such as acetaldehyde
and uric acid.
