Include a variety of structural types like fatty acids, terpenes, steroids,
prostaglandins, and carotenes. They differ in both structure and function but
they all have same biosynthetic origin- ultimately derived from glucose.

Conjugation in Alkadienes and Allylic Systems
A double bond can act like a substituent and give other
groups special properties and reactivity.
For example carbocations, radicals and anions connected
to alkenes are called allylic carbocations,
