Glycerol is the by-product obtained during the manufacturing form the biodiesel. Diacetin is one of the Diacetin, also known as glycerol diacetate is an ester compound used as a filler material or diluent in a production of synthetic food color. Glycerol diacetate is produced by the reaction of acetic acid and 1,2- and 1,3-diacetates of glycerol, with mono- and tri-esters in the minority. Its chemical formula is CH3COOCH2CH(OH)CH2OOCCH3. It is an odorless, colorless, hygroscopic, oily liquid which is soluble in alcohol, ether and other organic solvents synthesized from glycerin. The glycerol diacetate is manufactured as per the food standards and is used in vast industrial uses including solvent, softener, and cement additive. It is packaged in the metal container to avoid direct contact with the air and other impurities. It is directed to be stored in cool and dry place to avoid heat exposure. Glycerol diacetate is used as food additive and diluent in the coloring and flavoring agents.
