Glycerol is a non-toxic, recyclable and biodegradable organic waste produced
as a byproduct in the production of biodiesel fuel. Currently, glycerol is considered
a green solvent and catalyst for a large variety of applications. This work discusses
the significance of glycerol for heterocyclic synthesis. All the reported studies
consider glycerol as an efficient and sustainable benign medium.
Keywords: Glycerol, benign medium, synthetic heterocycles, green synthesis, biodegradable, recyclable.
