Abstract:

The structure of Langmuir monolayers containing either a lipidated poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG-lipid), or a lipidated peptide (peptide-amphiphile) or a binary mixture of both was studied using neutron reflectivity. The PEG portion of the PEG-lipid extends into the water, forming dense polymer.
