Abstract: In this article, we investigate the interaction of meso-tetraphenylporphyrin (TPP) with phospholipid monolayers. Pure TPP molecules form films at the air-water interface with large extension of aggregation, which is confirmed by UV-vis spectra of transferred monolayers. For mixed films of TPP with dipalmitoyl phosphatidyl choline (DPPC) or dipalmitoyl phosphatidyl glycerol (DPPG), on the other hand, aggregation is only significant at high surface pressures or high concentrations of TPP (above 0.1 molar ratio).…
