Electrochemical Study of Oxygen Behaviour with Lung Surfactant

  • Erna Ladanyi
Part of the Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology book series (AEMB, volume 248)


At the very beginning of its way to any tissue inhaled oxygen has to cross the so-called lung surfactant surface layer LSSL. Therefore, the properties of the LSSL especially those influencing its permeability, elasticity and stability are of great interest for oxygen transport studies.
