CONTROL OF BILAYER SELF-ASSEMBLY THROUGH POLYMER ADSORPTION.

Published

Journal Article

The authors have been interested for some time in modification of phospholipid bilayers by synthetic polymers. With molecular dimensions comparable to or greater than the thickness of the lipid bilayer and many times the intermolecular spacing in the bilayer plane, synthetic polymers might be expected to serve as potent modifiers of bilayer structure and function. The observation is described of an interdigitated gel phase in dipalmitoylphosphatidylglycerol bilayers treated with aliphatic ionene polymers.
