Lipid tubules represent a hollow, cylindrical supramolecular structure formed by rolled-up lipid bilayers. We find that the lipid tubules of 1,2-bis(tricosa-10,12-diynoyl)-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine can be bent into a loopike shape by the shrinking contact line of droplets on self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) of 1-dodecanethiol. The persistence length of individual lipid tubules is estimated to be approximately 41 microm. The radial deformation of the lipid tubules on SAMs is studied under… CONTINUE READING
