Fatty acids are the simplest lipids, and are chemically defined as: a linear, nonbranched, nonpolar hydrocarbon chain that can be saturated or unsaturated, with a single carboxyl group at one end. In this definition, the term linear indicates that they are a chain with a defined beginning and end, that is, they do not contain any rings. Nonbranched means that there are only two ends present on the molecule.
Nonpolar indicates that they do not dissolve in water, in contrast to polar molecules which do. A hydrocarbon chain indicates that they only contain hydrogen and carbon; the typical length is 1622, but shorter and longer molecules can also be found. Saturated fatty acids (SFAs) contain no double bonds (also known as unsaturations), while unsaturated fatty acids contain at least one double bond; triple bonds are not found on fatty acids.
