The triglyceride 1,2,3-tri acetoxy propane is more generally known as triacetin, glycerin triacetate, or 1,2,3-triacylglycerol. It is the triester of glycerol and acetylating agents, such as acetic acid and acetic anhydride.[6] It is a colorless, viscous, and odorless liquid at standard temperature and pressure (STP) with a high boiling point and a low melting point. It has a mild, sweet taste in concentrations lower than 500 ppm, but may appear bitter at higher concentrations. It is one of the glycerine acetate compounds.


It is an artificial chemical compound, commonly used as a food additive, for instance as a solvent in flavorings, and for its humectant function, with E number E1518 and Australian approval code A1518. It is used as an excipient in pharmaceutical products, where it is used as a humectant, a plasticizer, and a solvent.

The plasticizing capabilities of triacetin have been utilized in the synthesis of a biodegradable phospholipid gel system for the dissemination of the cancer drug paclitaxel (PTX). In the study, triacetin was combined with PTX, ethanol, a phospholipid, and a medium-chain triglyceride to form a gel-drug complex. This complex was then injected directly into the cancer cells of glioma-bearing mice. The gel slowly degraded and facilitated the sustained release of PTX into the targeted glioma cells.

Additionally, preliminary research also suggests that triacetin can be used to directly treat glioblastoma. The study found that triacetin is a viable mediator for acetate supplementation, a therapy that inhibits glioblastoma cell growth.

Triacetin can also be used as a fuel additive as an antiknock agent which can reduce engine knocking in gasoline, and improve cold and viscosity properties of biodiesel.

It has been considered as a possible source of food energy in artificial food regeneration systems on long space missions. It is believed to be safe to get over half of one’s dietary energy from triacetin.
