(±)9-HETE is one of the six monohydroxy fatty acids produced by the non-enzymatic oxidation of arachidonic acid. The individual R and S isomers of racemic HETEs have been separated and identified using chiral phase HPLC.1 The racemic HETEs have been quantified as an index of lipid peroxidation using GC/MS.2
