Zwitterionic inverse-phosphocholine (iPC) lipids contain headgroups with an inverted charge orientation relative to phosphocholine (PC) lipids. The iPC lipid headgroup has a quaternary amine adjacent to the bilayer interface and a phosphate that extends into the aqueous phase. Neutral iPC...

Phospholipids are a major component of the cell membrane. In most natural phospholipids, the phosphate acts as a bridge, connecting the other portion of the polar headgroup with the hydrophobic tails. Such bridging phosphate is chemically quite inert. Synthetic lipids...

Zwitterionic phosphocholine (PC) lipids are highly biocompatible, representing a major component of the cell membrane. A simple mixing of PC liposomes and silica (SiO2) surface results in liposome fusion with the surface and formation of supported lipid bilayers. However, the...
