Know characteristics of cis- and trans-fatty acids; be familiar with what the process of hydrogenation does to fatty acids - Hydrogenation purpose: the cists goes to linear trans shape and acts more like a fatty acid - Trans – more linear (hydrogen on opposite side of the double bond) - Cys – hydrogen atoms are on the same side of the double bond.
