Malondialdehyde (MDA) and thiobarbituric acid (TBA) react to give a dye
with absorption maximum at 532 nm. This reaction is the basis of quite
a popular assay for assessment of lipid deterioration by autoxidation,
with thousands of papers referring to it. I searched in vain many
sources looking for the structure of the dye. Does anybody know where
to look for that?

All the best,

Jacob
