saturated
DEFINITION:


1. Of a chemical compound, having all the chemical affinities satisfied; i.e., no double or triple bonds are present. The term is most commonly used for carbon-carbon bonds, as in saturated fatty acids.
2. Of a solution, containing as much solute as may be dissolved under stated conditions.
3. Denoting a fatty acid having only single bonds in its carbon chain. (http://www.ndif.org/Terms/saturated.html)

Chain length

The length of carbon chain in the hydrocarbon portion of a reversed-phase packing. It is expressed as the number of carbon atoms such as C8 and C18.
