: LIPIDAT is a convenient compilation of thermodynamic data and bibliographic information on lipids. Over 11,000 records in 15 information fields are provided. The book presents tabulations of all known mesomorphic and polymorphic phase transition types, temperatures, and enthalpies for synthetic and biologically derived lipids in dry, partially hydrated, and fully hydrated states. It also includes the effect of pH, protein, drugs, salt, and metal ion concentration on these thermodynamic values. Methods used in making the measurements and the experimental conditions are reported. Bibliographic information includes a complete literature reference and list of authors. The book will be an indispensable reference for biophysicists, chemical engineers, pharmaceutical and cosmetic researchers, dermatologists, nutritionists, biochemists, physiologists, food scientists, and fats and oils chemists.
