Abstract: Both dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO) and glycerol act cryoprotectants for biological systems and materials. Knowledge of molecular interactions of DMSO and glycerol with biological lipids is important for understanding of their cryoprotecitive mechanisms. In this study, the phase behavior and structures of hydrated monoolein were investigated in the presence of DMSO or glycerol, using differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and simultaneous X-ray diffraction/DSC measurements. Based on the results obtained by this stu…
