International Society for Fats Research http://www.isfnet.org The International Society for Fats Research, which has its headquarters in Champaign, Illinois, USA, comprises 24 member organisations and aims to promote exchange of information on fats, oils and related materials. It achieves this through the organisation of international conferences on fat science and technology, and symposia on more specific subjects. This website provides contact details for each member organisation and a calendar of relevant forthcoming meetings; the last meeting detailed is due to be held in May 2007. A brief history of the Society is given together with information on past holders of and nominations for an award presented by the Society in honour of their founder: the Kaufmann Memorial Lecture Award.

Lipid Analysis Unit, Scottish Crop Research Institutehttp://www.lipid.co.uk/ This online lipid information resource is produced by the Lipid Analysis Unit, a commercial venture that is part of Mylnefield Research Services Ltd. Services provided by (including contract research and courses on lipid chemistry and analysis), facilities at and staff employed by the Unit are detailed; however, the site is also the home of the Lipid Library. This online library comprises numerous documents, available as HTML or PDF files, on various aspects of lipid chemistry and analysis produced, predominantly, by Dr. William W. Christie. The library is divided into the following sections: what is a lipid?; individual lipid and fatty acid classes -- structures, composition, analysis; mass spectrometry of fatty acid derivatives; methods used in lipid analysis; introduction to conjugated linoleic acid; and 13C-NMR chemical shifts for fatty acids and their derivatives. In addition, a lipid literature database has been created; references for the current year are added monthly and references are organised yearly from 1994 until the present. A comprehensive list of links to other relevant websites is also provided.

Oil World http://www.oilworld.biz/app.php Oil World, or ISTA Mielke GmbH, based in Hamburg, Germany, provides information and forecasting regarding the global market in fats and oils, oilseeds and oilseed meals. Publications and a CD-ROM produced by the company are promoted on the website, and recent market headlines and a list of 20 relevant links have been posted.
