Addition Reactions to Unsaturated Fatty Acids: A Theoretical Study about Mechanisms and Stereochemistry
Keywords:Chemical Education, Fatty acids, Reaction Mechanisms, Stereochemistry
After a short introduction about fatty acids, the article refers to an unclear statement by Gibson et al. about the kind and number of isomeric products formed by addition of hypochloric acid to palmitoleic acid and linoleic acid. A theoretical approach with detailed mechanistic and stereochemical considerations will lead the reader to the solution of the problem.
