Aim To study physical and chemical structures and properties including calorific value of human adipose tissue in different anatomical location in autopsy-assigned clinical trial. Methods A pilot physical and chemical descriptive randomized autopsy-assigned trial. Adipose tissue 252 sampled from 36 individuals at autopsy who between 36 and 63 years old died from road accidents. Interventions: Chemical functional groups and calorific value were studied using infrared and atomic adsorptive spectrometries, elemental chemical analysis and differential scanning calorimetry. Adipose tissue was sampled from the 7 various anatomical locations. Results The highest levels of the analysed chemical substancies were found in dense atherosclerotic plaque. Dense atherosclerotic plaque contains the most of metabolic products, organic and inorganic elements. Dense atherosclerotic plaque has the most of calorific value. The lowest calorific capacity has a pararenal fat. Conclusions Human body lipids serve as a harbor for various organic substances, they may absorb different metabolic products, and they have different calorific capacity depending on their location and forms. Atherosclerotic plaque contains the most of organic and inorganic elements, and brings the highest energy potential.
