This compound belongs to the class of organic compounds known as lysophosphatidylglycerols. These are glycerophosphoglycerols (molecules containing a glycerol moiety attached to the phosphate group linked to a glycerol) in which only one fatty acid is bonded to the 1-glycerol moiety (through an ester linkage).
