Synthetic Molecular Membranes and their Functions

Abstract

Synthetic bilayer membranes can be formed spontaneously from a variety of single-chain and double-chain(dialkyl) amphiphiles. In the case of single-chain amphiphiles, the presence of rigid segments is required in the hydrophobic portion and the aggregate morphology is strongly affected by the structure of the rigid segment. The phase transition and the phase separation are observed in these membranes and the membrane catalysis is affected by these phenomena.
