¿Cuáles son lípidos?

Los lípidos son las moléculas que contienen los hidrocarburos y componen los bloques huecos de la estructura y de la función de células vivas. Los ejemplos de lípidos incluyen las grasas, aceites, ceras, ciertas vitaminas (tales como A, D, E y K), las hormonas y la mayor parte de la membrana celular que no se compone de la proteína.

Los lípidos no son solubles en agua como son no polares, pero son así solubles en disolventes no polares tales como cloroformo.
