A lipid is defined as a water-insoluble biomolecule which has a high solubility in nonpolar organic solvents such as chloroform. The simplest lipids are the fats, which are triesters made up of one glycerol and three fatty acids. The term fats is also used as a general synonym for lipids, so the more precise terms triacylglycerols or triglycerides are preferable for the simplest lipids. Triacylglycerols are used primarily for energy storage in animals. More complex lipids, the phospholipids, glycolipids, and cholesterol, are the major constituents of biological cell membranes.
