We have developed a new method for the preparation of giant liposomes in aqueous solution containing high salt concentrations (up to 2.0 M). Hydrophilic polymers attached to the surface of lipid membranes by including a small amount of poly(ethylene glycol)-grafted phospholipid in the membrane increase the repulsive force between the membranes, which makes(More)
