Abstract: The behaviour of dipalmitoylphosphatidylcholine (DPPC), mixed with stearonitrile (SN), was investigated at the air-water interface by surface pressure-area (pi-A) measurements and by direct visualisation of monolayers by Brewster angle microscopy (BAM). The pi-A-X diagram of system DPPC/SN was compared with the corresponding diagrams of systems DPPC/stearic acid (SA) and DPPC/octadecanol (OD) at 20 degrees C. Monolayers of the three systems reach the closest packing of alkyl chains in the 0.4-0.6 range of XDPP…
