Abstract

Cosonication of a styrene-containing surfactant H2C=CHC 6H4NHCO[CH2]10N+(C 16H33)Me2Br- (1) with dipalmitoylphosphatidylcholine (DPPC) leads to mixed DPPC-(1) 300 Å diameter unilamellar vesicles which subsequent to photopolymerization maintain their morphologies for months; conversely, nonpolymerized vesicles undergo spontaneous growth to 700 Å diameter vesicles.
