Synthesis and Analysis of Stable Isotope- and Radioisotope-Labeled Fatty Acids

  • Edward A. Emken
Part of the Handbook of Lipid Research book series (HLRE, volume 1)


This chapter will touch on points of general consideration for preparing labeled fatty acids and on selected methods used to label fatty acids. Representative syntheses of some labeled fatty acids will be described, and typical analytical methods for determining isotope purities and label position will be covered.
