Contents Notes
Introduction -- Solubility of hydrocarbons in water -- Solubility of amphiphiles in water and organic solvents -- Effect of temperature, anomalous entropy and heat capacity -- Structure of water -- Micelles -- Thermodynamics of micelle formation -- Micelle size and size distribution -- Micelle shape -- Mixed micelles -- Monolayers -- Biological lipids -- Motility and order -- Proteins -- Association of hydrocarbons -- and amphiphiles with common soluble proteins -- Association of proteins with biological lipids -- Serum lipoproteins -- Biological membranes and their composition -- Problem of membrane structure. The hydrophobic effect is perhaps the most important single factor in the organization of the constituent molecules of living matter into complex structural entities such as cell membranes and organelles. It is equally important in the formation of detergent micelles and other phenomena that occur in aqueous solution. In spite of this, no comprehensive account of the hydrophobic effect exists, and this book is intended to fill that gap.
