The Partitioning of Liposomes of Defined Size and Composition
Liposomes are a well-established experimental system in which to model biological membranes. Studies with multilamellar vesicles (MLVs) and small unilamellar vesicles (SUVs), prepared by sonication, by Eriksson and Ålbertsson  and by Sharpe [2,3], have demonstrated the importance of the polar head group in determining the partitioning of liposomes.
