It appears that 10g/180ml is a supersaturated solution ,that some kind of complex is formed,or that 1g/100ml is not correct.
I'm pretty sure you would find that 10 grams of Metol also should not dissolve in 180 ml glycerol, but it did when heated and stayed in solution after cooling. I have not had any luck so far finding any such data. I'll try your entry. Was that in Google?
