Applications
Glycine is used as an additive in pet food, animal feed and sweetener and taste enhancer in human foods. It is also used as a buffering agent in antacids, analgesics, antiperspirants, cosmetics and toiletries. It acts as a neurotransmitter in the central nervous system, especially in the spinal cord, brainstem, and retina. It serves as a buffer agent and prevents the sample damage during electrophoresis. Further, it is used to remove protein-labelling antibodies from western blot membranes. In addition to this, it is involved in the production of rubber sponge products, metal complexants and fertilizers.

Solubility
Soluble in water and pyridine. Slightly soluble in acetone. Insoluble in diethyl ether, n-octanol and ethanol.

Notes
Incompatible with strong oxidizing agents.
