Trans Fatty Acids

UNSATURATED FATTY ACIDS that contain at least one double bond in the trans configuration, which results in a greater bond angle than the cis configuration. This results in a more extended fatty acid chain similar to SATURATED FATTY ACIDS, with closer packing and reduced fluidity. HYDROGENATION of unsaturated fatty acids increases the trans content.
Also Known As:
Trans-Fatty Acids; Acids, Trans Fatty; Acids, Trans-Fatty; Fatty Acids, Trans
