Fatty Acids

  • John D. Weete
Part of the Monographs in Lipid Research book series (MLR)

Abstract

Fatty acids, as discussed in this chapter, are monocarboxylic acids containing a straight, branched, or cyclic hydrocarbon chain of variable length. The physical properties of these lipids are strongly influenced by the carbon chain length, the degree of saturation, and substituents such as hydroxyl, amino, epoxy, and keto groups which may be present on the carbon chain.

Keywords

Total Fatty Acid Hydroxy Acid Ricinoleic Acid High Relative Abundance Smut Fungus 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
