Product Description

α-Monothioglycerol

Application Notes

α-Monothioglycerol is used as a matrix in fast atom bombardment mass spectrometry and liquid secondary ion mass spectrometry. It has been used as a cryopreservative. It has also been used in cell culture studies of embryonic cortical and hippocampal neurons, mouse bone marrow mast cell lines, and human Β cell lines have utilized 1-thioglycerol as a component of the culture medium to stimulate proliferation. In materials and biomaterials science, 1-thioglycerol has been used in the preparation of thiol modified gold surfaces for human immunoglobulin binding and of water soluble luminescent CdS quantum dots.1-Thioglycerol has been used in a study to assess the manipulation of aqueous growth of CdTe nanocrystals. It has also been used in a study that investigated the effect of surface attachment on ligand binding.
