"Supported polymer/lipid hybrid bilayers formation resembles a lipid-like dynamic by reducing the molecular weight of the polymer"
- Hybrid polymer/lipid bilayers are interesting alternatives to lipid-based membrane models in many fields of science.
- The tuneable polymeric component allows for fine adjustments of the resulting hybrid bilayers (e.g. thickness, % PEGylation).
- Reducing the polymer MW to values closer to the lipids´one, results in hybrid bilayers with a lipid-like spreading behavior.
