    Dr.Bob, do you think there is a formula for animals fats? I can only find the different formula for different lipids. Thanks

  • Chemistry -

    There are several, I suppose, but the one I see referenced as an example all the time is the ester between glycerine and stearic acid. Stearic acid is C17H35COOH and glycerine (glycerol) is (CH2OH)3. The ester is
    (C17H35CO)3(CH2O)3 if I counted right.
