Triglycine Sulfate

Formula: 3(NH2CH2COOH)┬ĚH2SO4 Triglycine Sulfate

Properties

  • Crystal system: monoclinic
  • Stability on air: stable

Triglycine sulfate has an interesting physical property: strong birefringence: Triglycine Sulfate

Preparation

Dissolve glycine and sulfuric acid in water, in 3:1 molar ratio, then crystallize.

Growing

Regular slow evaporation method used. Solubility is not much different from pure glycine, around 20..30g per 100ml.

Safety

The compound is not toxic, but since glycine is a very weak base, its solution is very acidic. Thus, it have corrosive and irritating properties, and even can cause burns.
