Ester bonds are formed from the condensation of a carboxylic acid group (COOH) such as in fatty acids and an alcohol (OH) group as in glycerol (rather than just 'two OH groups', which would theoretically form an ether).

Yes just to confirm, its formed by the condensation of an alcohol and a carboxylic acid, but what normandy said is partly correct because there is an OH on the carboxylic acid, although the C=O contributes to the functional group as well.

I need to define Ester bonds, just a couple of lines I think.

I know they are the bonds formed between fatty acids, but when i try to expand on this, every page online seems to have a different definition, with different words...
