pentaerythritol
329
Pentaerythritol (a.k.a. PER) is an organic compound in the polyol class. It is an odorless white solid, with four hydroxyl groups in its structure, allowing the attachment of four groups (similar or not), and, hence, the synthesis of greatly branched compounds/structures. For this characteristic, pentaerythritol and its derivatives have a wide variety of applications.
