Organic solvents induce interdigitated gel structures in multilamellar vesicles of dipalmitoylphosphatidylcholine.

Abstract

We have investigated the effects of several water-soluble organic solvents which also have a high solubility for alkanes, on the structure and phase behavior of multilamellar vesicles of dipalmitoylphosphatidylcholine (DPPC-MLV). Of these solvents, we selected five organic solvents; such as, acetonitrile, acetone, propionaldehyde, ethanol, and… (More)
