Water dispersions of dioctanoylphosphatidylcholine (diC8PC) exhibit upper consolute curves. How they are affected by some salts and other additives (D2O, urea) has already been explored and the phase separation has been interpreted within the framework of the Blankschtein- Thurston-Benedek (BTB) model. This deduces the chemical potential gain in micellar growth (Δμ) and the intermicellar interaction coefficient (C) as fitting parameters from the coexistence curves. But, the specific mechanisms...[Show more]
