This mini review presents the state of knowledge on the [3+2] cycloaddition reactions involving fatty acids and their esters with triatomic components (TAC). In general, the literature reports are quite sparse and relatively old. The reaction yield was in the range of 12-85%. The best result of 32CA was obtained from the reaction of butylonitrile N-oxide (4) and methyl oleate (2). Other tested TAC as components of title reactions were nitrylimines and ozone.
