How Does A Saturated Fat And An Unsaturated Fat At The Molecular Level?

- 5. How can you distinguish between a saturated fat and an unsaturated fat at the molecular level. Saturated and unsaturated fats differ in their chemical structures. Saturated fats have no double bond between molecules, which means there are no gaps and the fat is saturated with hydrogen molecules. On the other hand, unsaturated fats have double bonds, which break up the chain of hydrogen molecules and create gaps, allowing the fats to liquefy at room temperature.
