Which fatty acid -palmitic, stearic, palmitoleic, or arachidonic, would have lowest m.p. and explain why.
Which would be chiral? A)glyceryl tripalmitate,B) glyceryl 1-stearate, 2,3 dipalmitate,C) glyceryl 2-stearate, 12,3-dipalmitate. Explain why.
A lipid is isolated and treated with boiling aqueous NaOH. The products obtained are sphingosine, sodium stearate,glucose,galactose and mannose. To which class would this lipid belong? Explain.
