Self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) comprised of a mixture of thiol–lipid and spacer–thiol have been used to tether bilayer lipid membranes. However, the properties of these mixed SAMs and their effect on the tethered bilayer lipid membranes (tBLMs) are not fully understood. In this paper, these SAMs have been characterised by electrochemical impedance spectroscopy, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, atomic force microscopy and cyclic voltammetry. A complex pattern of mixing and phase separation is… CONTINUE READING
