Fatty acid and glycerine

Fatty acids and glycerine are obtained through the splitting of oils and fats.

Fatty acid is a group name for monocarboxylic acids which consist of a carboxyl group
(-COOH) and a different length, but almost exclusively unbranched hydrocarbon chain.

Composition and structure of fatty acids:

The name given to fatty acid is in part due to the chemical properties of this substance group, which through its carboxyl group react acidly. Fatty acids differ in the number of carbon atoms (chain length) and - for unsaturated fatty acids - in the number and position of the double bonds.

Due to its three hydroxyl groups (OH groups) in the molecular structure, glycerine belongs to the trivalent alcohols and is also known under the name of glycerol. Glycerine is present in all natural fats and oils as fatty acid esters (triglycerides).
