Surface pressure-area isotherm, neutron specular reflection, and small-angle neutron scattering studies have been carried out to determine the effects of added cholesterol and distearoylphosphatidylcholine (DSPC), on the molecular structures of monolayers and vesicles containing the dialkyl polyoxyethylene ether surfactant, 1,2-di-O-octadecyl-rac-glyceryl-3-(alpha-dodecaethylene glycol) (2C18E12). Previous neutron reflectivity studies on 2C18E12 monolayers at the air/water interface have shown… CONTINUE READING
