Phospholipid bilayers are one of the primary building blocks of biomembranes while phospholipid liposemes are critically important for their role in the encapsulation and delivery of pharmaceutical drugs. Written by a world-renowned expert in the field, this handbook provides the only single source for primary physicochemical data relating to phospholipid bilayers. It is an indispensable reference for anyone using bilayer model membranes and liposome delivery systems and for those interested in the biophysics of membrane structure. Coverage includes both dynamic and structural properties of phospholipid bilayers, along with basic thermodynamic data. The author begins with an introduction to basic properties of phospholipids and their nomenclature. The next several chapters discuss the phase behavior of phospholipid-water systems and the equilibrium properties of bilayers. The book also presents a detailed treatment of the dynamics of transfer between bilayers and transformation to nonbilayer phases that are relevant to membrane fusion processes. Each data section is preceded by an introduction to the measurements. Comparable data are also included for glycolipids, the other bilayer-forming lipid component of biological membranes.
