Autoxidation of unsaturated lipids has received much attention because it has many applications in the rancidity of foods and stability of lipids in biological tissues and compartments. This book reviews state-of-the-art developments in the understanding of the oxidation of lipids and its connection with the oxidation of other biological molecules such as proteins and starch. The various chapters illustrate the special features associated with different lipids, antioxidants, reaction conditions, and lipids environments. The material in this book provides a better understanding of lipid oxidation pathways.
