Repulsive stabilization in black lipid membranes. A hydrodynamic model.

Abstract

A linear stability analysis is performed for a black lipid membrane. The hydrodynamic model consists of a viscous hydrocarbon film sandwiched between two aqueous phases. Attractive forces (van der Waals and electrical) and repulsive forces (steric) are expressed as body forces in the equations of fluid motion in the three phases. The steric repulsion due to… (More)
