These organic molecules are lipids.
Lipids are a large group of naturally occurring organic compounds. These macromolecules contain carbon and hydrogen atoms. Lipids are not soluble in water because they are said to be non-polar and thus will only dissolve in nonpolar environments, e.g. in chloroform.
The primary functions of lipids include energy storage, structural components of cell membranes and signaling.
Examples of lipids include fatty acids, fats, oils, waxes, hormones, steroids and certain vitamins known as lipid soluble vitamins.
Lipids are organic macromolecule that is insoluble in water and present in the plasma membrane. They store energy for a very long time.
Organic molecules are molecules that possess carbon atoms held together by carbon-carbon bonding. Some of them are small, for example, ethanol. Whereas some are a large organic molecule that consists of thousands or hundreds of atoms, joint together by carbon-carbon bonding. Such large biological molecules are known as macromolecules. Some examples of the organic molecule are lipids, carbohydrates, proteins, and nucleic acid.
Lipids are organic molecules present as the structural components of membranes and parts of cells. They are non-polar and contain C-H and C-C covalent bonds. They are hydrophobic and resist dissolving in water. They are commonly known as fats or oils and are composed of fatty acids linked to glycerol molecules. They are considered as building blocks of “cellular membranes” that store energy. They store high amounts of energy because of the greater number of the C-H bonds that mainly release energy when absorbed with the presence of oxygen. They perform the function of cellular communication, insulation, and protection.

Lipids are a long chain of hydrocarbons. Fat, oil and wax are some common examples of lipids. Water is a polar molecule whereas lipid is non-polar therefore lipids are insoluble in water (like dissolves like).
Lipids are biomolecules which are integral part of biological membranes. The structure of the cell membrane is called lipid bilayer because it is consists of two fat layers arranged in two sheets. The cell membranes are consists of a lipid bilayer which has a polar head and non-polar tail. The polar (hydrophilic) heads are oriented towards the aqueous region and the non-polar (hydrophobic) tail is oriented away from the aqueous region. The most common form of lipids present in biological membranes are phospholipids, glycolipids, and sterols. The phospholipids layer of the cell membrane is arranged in such a way that the hydrophilic region is exposed to water whereas the hydrophobic tail is hidden. The cell membrane acts as a selectively permeable membrane for the entry and exit of living matters.
