I wanted to ask about triacylglycerol fatty acid, as you know its got 3 fatty tails. A hydrogen-saturated tail creates more van der Waals connections with neighboring fatty acids and the melting temperature is higher. Whereas unsaturated tails will cause spatial disturbance and bc of that less connections form and the melting point is getting low. My question is whether such an arrangement of unsaturated tail in the middle of two saturated tails might moderate the disturbing effect of the unsaturated tail and can effect even a little on the melting point?... Even just theortical speecking
Where can i find material on this topic?
