In this study, surface coatings were used to control the morphology of the deposited lipid layers during vesicle spreading, i.e., to control if liposomes self-assemble on a surface into a supported lipid bilayer or a supported vesicular layer. The influence of the properties of the surface coating on formation of the deposited lipid layer was studied with quartz crystal microbalance and two-wavelength multiparametric surface plasmon resonance techniques. Control of lipid self-assembly on the… CONTINUE READING
