Langmuir monolayers; lipids; neutron reflectivity;
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.
