Lipid bilayer: Spontaneous arrangement of polar lipids, such as phospholipids, when in contact with water-containing solutions. Given that phospholipids have in their structure a hydrophilic headgroup and two hydrophobic tails, they adopt a disposition of a flat two-layered sheet with the headgroups facing the aqueous milieu and the hydrophobic tails grouped toward the inside of the sheet, isolated from water (Scheme 1).
