Perspectives in Supramolecular Chemistry Founded by J.-M. LehnPerspectives in Supramolecular Chemistry reflects research whichdevelops supramolecular structures with specific new properties,such as recognition, transport and simulation of biosystems or newmaterials. The series covers all areas from theoretical andmodelling aspects through organic and inorganic chemistry andbiochemistry to materials, solid-state and polymer sciencesreflecting the many and varied applications of supramolecularstructures in modern chemistry. Giant Vesicles Edited by Pier LuigiLuisi and Peter Walde Institute für Polymere, ETH-Zürich,Switzerland Giant vesicles or giant liposomes are supramolecularassembles of amphiphiles, surface active substances which normallycontain one or two hydrophobic chains and one hydrophilic head. Dueto their relatively large size, giant vesicles are easily observedby light microscopy. This volume provides an overview of ideas andresults obtained from experimental studies as well as theoreticalapproaches. A wide variety of aspects ranging from pure mathematicsand physical considerations to biochemical and biologicalapplications are covered. Historical and fundamental aspects arediscussed as well as a range of experimental approaches includingthe micromanipulation and micro-puncturing of single giantvesicles. 87 international contributors comment on a wide range ofissues contained under the five main part headings: IntroductionPreparation Methods Basic Theoretical Aspects Physical PropertiesChemical and Biological Aspects. Giant Vesicles has been writtenfor researchers in the fields of chemistry, biochemistry andbiophysics, working in supra-molecular chemistry, surfactantscience, liposome and pharmaceutical sciences.
