Fatty Acid Molecule Structures
This molecular model kit will allow you to build any of the important fatty acids commonly found in foods, etc. including the omega 3, 6 & 9 structures.
Click on the Details Tab below for links to see images of each of the fatty acids that can be built with this kit.
The image shown is that of tripalmitin which is a triglyceride that can be built with this kit. There are enough parts to build any 3 C18 fatty acids and a single C57 triglyceride.
This kit will build tripalmitin which is a triglyceride (triacylglycerol). In some textbooks, you will see the central chain laid out in the opposite direction. We have moved them all so that they will fit into the picture.
