a compound, glyceric aldehyde, formed by the oxidation of glycerol.

glyc·er·al·de·hyde

(glis'ĕr-al'dĕ-hīd),
A triose and the simplest optically active aldose; the dextrorotatory isomer is taken as the structural reference point for all d compounds, the levorotatory isomer for all l compounds.

glyceraldehyde

/glyc·er·al·de·hyde/ (glis″er-al´dĕ-hīd) an aldose, the aldehyde form of the three-carbon sugar derived from the oxidation of glycerol; isomeric with dihydroxyacetone. The 3-phosphate derivative is an intermediate in the metabolism of glucose, in both the Embden-Meyerhof and pentose phosphate pathways.

n.
A sweet colorless crystalline solid, C3H6O3, that is an intermediate compound in carbohydrate metabolism.
