In this paper, the effect of the simultaneous rotation of two different groups, hydroxyl (OH) and hydroxymethyl (CH2OH) groups, on the basic properties of Glycerol are comprehensively studied. Relative energies are reported at the HF/aug-cc-pVDZ, b3lyp/ aug-cc-pVDZ levels with corrections for zero-point vibrational energies. Structural parameters, Electric Dipole Moment and HOMO-LUMO energy gap of the identified conformers are also tabled. An inverse correlation between the relative energy and HOMO-LUMO energy gap is seen.
