Lipids containing diphytanoyl fatty acid chains have been used to produce stable planar lipid membranes (see References). Diphytanoyl phosphatidylcholine does not exhibit a detectable gel to liquid crystalline phase transition from -120°C to +120°C.

The list of Phosphatidylcholine products offered by Avanti is designed to provide compounds having a variety of physical properties. Products available include short chain (C3-C8 are water soluble and hygroscopic), saturated, multi-unsaturated and mixed acid PC's. All of the products are purified by HPLC, and special precautions are taken to protect the products from oxidization and hydrolysis. Several of these products are manufactured under the current guidelines of Good Manufacturing Practice and are available for pharmaceutical use. If you have a requirement for a choline derivative not found on our list, please call us: custom synthesis is one of our specialties.
