Application

Glyceryl trioctanoate has been used:
  • as a solvent for quercetin dihydrate and used to study its healing effect on full thickness epidermal burn wound in Wistar
  • in the preparation of homogenous solution of silver complexes with different ligands to study its healing effect in a Wistar rat model of full-thickness burn
  • in the preparation of oil-water emulsions

Biochem/physiol Actions

Glyceryl trioctanoate might serve as a skin softening agent. It possesses caprylic acid as the aliphatic chain.
