Naturally Occurring Amphiphiles: Aspects of Their Phase Behavior

Chapter
Part of the Forschung Soziologie book series

Abstract

My discussion of naturally occurring amphiphiles will be confined to the class of phospholipids. Phospholipids are major constituents of biological membranes and serum lipoproteins. They usually make up 25–50% of the dry weight, the exception being myelin, where the phospholipid content amounts to ∼80%. Phospholipids are also commercially important, their technological applications ranging from emulsifiers to ingredients of foodstuffs, cosmetics, lubricants and medicinal products. The chemical structures of the most common phospholipids are presented in Table l.
