Abstract

Interfacial tension has been determined for phosphatidylcholine (PC)–decanoic acid (DA) and PC–decylamine (DE) membranes. PC (lecithin), DA and DE were used in the experiments; the interfacial tension values of the pure components are 1.62 × 10−3, −2.38 × 10−2 and −3.88 × 10−2 N/m (hypothetical values for DA and DE), respectively. The 1:1 complexes were formed during formation of PC–DA and PC–DE membranes. The following parameters describing the complexes were determined: the surface concentrations of the lipid membranes formed from these complexes, $$ A_{3}^{ - 1} $$ ; the interfacial tensions of such membranes, γ 3; and the stability constants of these complexes, K.
