Unformatted text preview: Lipids Fatty acids Triglycerides Phospholipids Sterols cholesterol cholesterol Amphipathic Molecules: Both Hydrophilic and Hydrophobic Fatty acids and phospholipids are amphipathic Fatty acids and phospholipids are amphipathic Amphipathic molecules form multi-molecular structures in Amphipathic molecules form multi-molecular structures in aqueous solutions aqueous solutions Maximize interaction of hydrophilic with hydrophilic, and Maximize interaction of hydrophilic with hydrophilic, and hydrophobic with hydrophobic hydrophobic with hydrophobic Hydrophobic Effect hydrophobic interaction; not hydrophobic bond Hydrophobic molecules are not strongly attracted to each other Hydrophobic molecules disrupt strong forces between water molecules Hydrophobic effect is proportional to surface area to be inserted into the aqueous solution Longer chain molecules less soluble in aqueous solution Longer chain molecules less soluble in aqueous solution...
