Название: Phase Transitions in Phosphatidylcholine Foam Bilayers
Авторы: Nikolova A., Exerowa D.
Foam bilayers from individual and mixed phosphatidylcholines are experimentally studied at different temperatures. Occurrence of a chain-melting phase transition in the foam bilayers is detected by two independent parameters - the critical concentration Cr for formation of foam bilayer and the foam bilayer thickness. The data for Cc are discussed on the basis of the hole-nucleation theory, which applies the lsing model to foam bilayers and uses the mean-field approximation for interpretation of their stability. This allows the determination of the binding energy of a phospholipid molecule in gel and liquid-crystalline foam bilayers. New possibilities to relate the microscopic and macroscopic characteristics of foam bilayers are demonstrated.
