Stabilization of self-assembled lipids in exfoliated organo-nanosheets

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Layered materials represent interesting 2D confinement matrix for both the preservation of organic compounds and were suggested as carriers for biomolecules. An organoclay was prepared with the use of a clay mineral modified by a cationic surfactant and used as a confinement matrix for assemblies formed by 1-monoolein lipid. Monoolein self assembles in water in various lyotropic and thermotropic liquid crystalline phases which were associated to organo-nanosheets resulting from a prior delamination procedure of the organoclay. The lamellar organization confined within the nanosheets displays a different phase sequence than the bulk state with its existence on wide range of temperature.
