Abstract: Archaea or archaebacteria are the microorganism living in extreme environments such as hot springs and salt lakes. The membrane is featured universally by lipids which possess saturated polyisoprenoid chains in the hydrophobic moiety. This paper concerns the surface properties of Langmuir membranes made of archaeal lipid models (AL) bearing a phytanyl group or (3RS, 7R, 11R)-3,7,11,15-tetramethylhexadecyl group. All of the AL provide a Langmuir membrane on an air-water interface with an abnormally low surface …
