    • Lipids
      • Roles
        • Energy storage, insulation, membranes, hormones, transport
      • Polar func groups
        • Saturated & Unsaturated hydrocarbon chains
          • Insoluble in water
          • Double bond = unsat
            • Cis and Trans
          • Hydrogenation
        • Carboxylic acid
      • Properties
        • More Cs = higher MP
        • More double bonds = Lower MP
