Electrolytes are known to impart considerable disorder to lipid assemblies, including monolayers at the air-water interface, bilayers, and vesicles. In the present work, we have investigated the disordering effect of sodium salts of monovalent anions that span the lyotropic series on the monolayers of 1,2-dipalmitoyl-sn-glycero-phosphocholine (DPPC) at 12 °C. Pressure-area isotherms, Brewster-angle microscopy (BAM), grazing-incidence X-ray diffraction (GIXD), and infrared absorption-reflection… CONTINUE READING
