Ion Specific Surface Forces between Membrane Surfaces

Bostrom, Mathias Anders; Deniz, Vivianne; Ninham, Barry


Entities such as ion distributions and forces between lipid membranes depend on effects due to the intervening salt solution that have not been recognized previously. These specific ion or Hofmeister effects influence membrane fusion. A typical illustrative example is this: measurements of forces between double-chained cationic bilayers adsorbed onto molecularly smooth mica surfaces across different 0.6-2 mM salt solutions have revealed a large degree of ion specificity [Pashley et al.
