Bio-sourced sorcery: 1,2,3-Trimethoxypropane (1,2,3-TMP) was prepared in one step from glycerol in good yield and selectivity by phase-transfer catalysis. No solvent or heating were required and the process was adapted to a series of glycerol monoethers to afford a family of polar aprotic, glycerol-based solvents. 1,2,3-TMP was evaluated as a solvent in transesterifications, organometallic, and carbon–carbon coupling reactions.
