The technique of 19F-nuclear magnetic resonance (19F-NMR) spectroscopy offers a number of advantages for studies of lipid fatty acyl chain orientation and dynamics in biomembranes. However, the geminal difluoromethylene fatty acid probes usually employed in such studies appreciably perturb the organization of lipid bilayers. We have thus synthesized a… CONTINUE READING
