The fatty acids are called as fatty acid as they bear a carboxylic acid group at the end a along fatty hydrocarbon chain on the other side. There are three fatty acids which are component of animal fats, vegetable oils and biological membranes. They all have 18 carbon atoms, but differ in unsaturation of long carbon chain. Linolenic acid. Draw the possible structure of each of the fatty acids showing all cis configuration.
