Applications
Glutaraldehyde is used as a cross linking agent for gelatin, poly(vinyl alcohol) and polyheptapeptides. It is also used as a fixative for electron microscopy and as disinfectants. It provides water resistance to protein and polyhydroxy compounds by reacting through cross linking. It acts as an intermediate for the production of resins, dyestuffs, pharmaceuticals, photographic films and for stabilization of proteins on agarose beads, activation of polystyrene and glass for immobilization of antibodies and antigens and coupling peptides onto carrier proteins.

Solubility
Miscible with water, acetone, dichloromethane, ethylacetate, isopropanol, n-hexane and toluene.

Notes
Incompatible with strong oxidisng agents, strong acids and strong bases.
