glycerol after reacting with gym-an oxygen giving reagent (such as KMnO4+H2SO4) produced glyceric acid.
Several phosphate derivatives of glyceric acid, including 2-phosphoglyceric acid, 3-phosphoglyceric acid, 2,3-bisphosphoglyceric acid, and 1,3-bisphosphoglyceric acid, are important biochemical intermediates in Glycolysis. 
3-phospho-Glyceric acid is an important molecule for the biosynthesis of a certain amino acid, Serine (Ser,S) which can therefore be used for the synthesis of Cysteine (Cys,C) and Glycine (Gly,G)
