The behaviour of N-hexadecanoylsphingosine (Cer16), N-hexanoylsphingosine (Cer6) and N-acetylsphingosine (Cer2) in aqueous media and in lipid-water systems, monolayers and bilayers has been comparatively examined using Langmuir balance and fluorescence techniques. Cer16 behaves as an insoluble non-swelling amphiphile, not partitioning into the air-water interface, thus not modifying the surface pressure of the aqueous solutions into which it is included. By contrast both Cer6 and Cer2 behave as… CONTINUE READING
