The salient conformational features and associated energies in dimyristoyl lecithin have been considered elsewhere (Mishra and Roper, 1973). We point out here (a) some avenues for evaluating the intermolecular energies as a function of the type of packing, (b) possible role of dispersing medium in bringing about phase transitions and (c) the influence of a specific molecule, cholesterol, in changing physical properties of the system.
