I had a strange visit the other day, a police car swept into my yard and young Garda got out looking very official. Turned out he was looking for glycerol. His hobby is making attempts on the world record for the largest soap bubble! ( I know, it takes all sorts) He has got to the stage he wants to make his own soap especially for its bubble making quantities. I sent him off with some nice thick glycerol.
I dont think this will solve our glycerol disposal problems but every little counts.
Is it well-demethed? If not, I suppose he could add some flair to his slightly toxic bubble show by burning the bubbles!
He won't stand a chance unless there is a stipulation that only natural ingredients be used.
The chem boys(Big Pharma - Big Cosmetics) extensively use a toxic product called Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) whose prime goal is to produce bubbles/lather. It is widely used in commercial type soaps, all shampoos commercially available, the vast majority of toothpastes amongst other things.
So ... unless it is forbidden to use this stuff there is no way the bubble making ability of the glyc layer will ever compete.
On the other hand palm or coconut oil glycerin will bubble up better than animal tallow discounting pig fat. Adding sugar will also help.
