Lipid-based lyotropic liquid crystals, also referred to as reversed liquid crystalline mesophases, such as bicontinuous cubic, hexagonal or micellar cubic phases, have attracted deep interest in the last few decades due to the possibility of observing these systems at thermodynamic equilibrium in excess water conditions. This becomes of immediate significance for applications in the colloidal environment, such as in the food, cosmetic and pharmaceutical arenas. One possible application regarded… CONTINUE READING
