Linoleic acid is an organic compound with the formula COOH(CH2)7CH=CHCH2CH=CH(CH2)4CH3. Both alkene groups are cis. It is a fatty acid sometimes denoted 18:2 (n-6) or 18:2 cis-912. A linoleate is a salt or ester of this acid.[4]

Linoleic acid is a polyunsaturated omega-6 fatty acid. It is a colorless or white oil that is virtually insoluble in water but soluble in many organic solvents.[2] It typically occurs in nature as a triglyceride (ester of glycerin) rather than as a free fatty acid.[5] It is one of two essential fatty acids for humans, who must obtain it through their diet.[6]

The word "linoleic" derives from the Latin linum "flax" + oleum "oil", reflecting the fact that it was first isolated from linseed oil.

In physiologyEdit

The consumption of linoleic acid is vital to proper health, as it is an essential fatty acid.[7] In rats, a diet deficient in linoleate (the salt form of the acid) has been shown to cause mild skin scaling, hair loss,[8] and poor wound healing.[9]

Metabolism and eicosanoidsEdit

Linoleic acid is a precursor to arachidonic acid (AA) with elongation and saturation,.[10] AA is the precursor to some prostaglandins,[11]leukotrienes (LTA, LTB, LTC), and thromboxane (TXA).[12]

The metabolism of LA to AA begins with the conversion of LA into gamma-Linolenic acid (GLA), effected by Δ6desaturase.[13] GLA is converted to dihomo-γ-linolenic acid (DGLA), the immediate precursor to AA.

LA is also converted by various lipoxygenases, cyclooxygenases, cytochrome P450 enzymes (the CYP monooxygenases), and non-enzymatic autoxidation mechanisms to mono-hydroxyl products viz., 13-Hydroxyoctadecadienoic acid, and 9-Hydroxyoctadecadienoic acid; these two hydroxy metabolites are enzymatically oxidized to their keto metabolites, 13-oxo-octadecadienoic acid and 9-oxo-octadecdienoic acid. Certain cytochrome P450 enzymes, the CYP epoxygenases, catalyze oxidation of LA to epoxide products viz., its 1213-epoxide, Vernolic acid, and its 910-epoxide, Coronaric acid. These linoleic acid products are implicated in human physiology and pathology.[citation needed]

Uses and reactionsEdit

Linoleic acid is a component of quick-drying oils, which are useful in oil paints and varnishes. These applications exploit the lability of the doubly allylic C-H groups (-CH=CH-CH2-CH=CH-) toward oxygen in air (autoxidation). Addition of oxygen leads to crosslinking and formation of a stable film.[14]

Reduction of the carboxylic acid group of linoleic acid yields linoleyl alcohol.[15]

Linoleic acid is a surfactant with a critical micelle concentration of 1.5 x 10−4 M @ pH 7.5.[citation needed]

Linoleic acid has become increasingly popular in the beauty products industry because of its beneficial properties on the skin. Research points to linoleic acid's anti-inflammatory, acne reductive, skin-lightening and moisture retentive properties when applied topically on the skin.[16][17][18][19]

Dietary sourcesEdit

It is abundant in safflower, sunflower, corn, and comprises over half their composition by weight. It is present in medium quantities in soybean oils, sesame, and almonds.[20][21]

Other occurrencesEdit

Cockroaches release oleic and linoleic acid upon death, which discourages other roaches from entering the area. This is similar to the mechanism found in ants and bees, which release oleic acid upon death.[30]

HistoryEdit

In 1844, F. Sacc, working at the laboratory of Justus von Liebig, isolated linoleic acid from linseed oil.[31][32] In 1886, K. Peters determined the existence of two double bonds.[33] Its essential role in human diet was discovered by G. O. Burr and others in 1930.[34] Its chemical structure was determined by T.P. Hilditch and others in 1939, and it was synthesized by R. A. Raphael and F. Sondheimer in 1950.[35]
