Docosahexaenoic acid is a 22:6 carbon polyunsaturated omega 3 fatty acid. It consists of a 21 carbon aliphatic (alkene) portion which has six cis-double bonds at positions 4, 7, 10, 13, 16 and 19 and a carboxylic acid functional group. Humans can convert alpha-linolenic acid into DHA which plays a structural role in the brain's cerebral cortex, skin, and retina.

Details

Use our 3D Molecular Model Builder in Orbit-flexible mode to view the docosahexaenoic acid structural version shown at the top in the image & build with the parts in this kit. This version can also be built with our 68827W organic chemistry student set & 68847W organic chemistry class set. Note that our Model Builder is indicating use of 50mm bonds for C=C but there are enough 35mm bonds in both sets & they are more representative of scale.

The version below it, is done as Orbit x-peg and would need extra parts (too many to be practical) or use our 68849W biochemistry class molecular model set.
