This chapter summarizes types of lipid oxidation – both enzymatic and non-enzymatic – and discusses reactivity, biological effects and metabolism of lipid oxidation products. Mechanistic explanations are provided for the diverse biological effects of lipid oxidation products that range from deleterious to regulatory and even to protective. Finally, analytical techniques used for detection of lipid oxidation and lipid oxidation products are discussed.
