Linolelaidic acid is an omega-6 trans fatty acid and a geometric isomer of linoleic acid. It is present in partially hydrogenated vegetable oils. It encompasses 12.39% of the fats from the fruit of the durian species called Durio graveolens. It is a colorless or white viscous liquid. Trans fatty acids are classified as conjugated and nonconjugated, corresponding usually to structural elements CH=CH-CH=CH- and -CH=CH-CH2-CH=CH-, respectively. Elaidic acid and linolelaidic acid respresent nonconjugated TFAs. Nonconjugated TFAs are represented by elaidic acid and linolelaidic acid. Its presence is associated to heart diseases.
