Two sides of the coin. Part 1. Lipid and surfactant self-assembly revisited

Ninham, Barry W; Larsson, Kåre; Lo Nostro, Pierandrea


Hofmeister, specific ion effects, hydration and van der Waals forces at and between interfaces are factors that determine curvature and microstructure in self assembled aggregates of surfactants and lipids; and in microemulsions. Lipid and surfactant head group interactions and between aggregates vary enormously and are highly specific. They act on the hydrophilic side of a bilayer, micelle or other self assembled aggregate. It is only over the last three decades that the origin of Hofmeister...[Show more]
