Monolayer behavior of binary systems of lactonic and acidic forms of sophorolipids: thermodynamic analyses of Langmuir monolayers and AFM study of Langmuir-Blodgett monolayers.

Abstract

The synergic effect and miscibility of the lactonic and acidic forms of sophorolipids (SLs) produced by Starmerella bombicola NBRC 10243 were first evaluated through atomic force microscopy (AFM), together with the Langmuir monolayer technique. The π-A isotherm of a pure lactonic sophorolipid (LS) monolayer mostly exhibited a liquid expanded monolayer… (More)
