Abstract

The layer formation of unilamellar vesicles of l-α-dimyristoyl phosphatidylcholine (DMPC) spread onto the air/liquid interface has been investigated. The layers were transferred to clean glass slides and onto slides made hydrophobic with multilayers of Cd arachidate. Aged vesicle suspensions aggregate during storage and are transferred as large domains as imaged with atomic force microscopy (AFM). Freshly prepared vesicles fuse and can be transferred as monolayers to hydrophobic supports. Furthermore, AFM images reveal the importance of positioning the solid support parallel to the moving barrier in order to obtain more uniform deposition of Cd arachidate.
