Correspondence between Curvature, Packing Parameter, and Hydrophilic-Lipophilic Deviation Scales around the Phase-Inversion Temperature

Kunz, Werner ; Testard, Fabienne ; Zemb, Thomas


We show in this paper that three ways of characterizing "spontaneous" lateral packing of amphiphiles are equiv.: the spontaneous curvature, the mol. packing parameter, and the refined hydrophilic-lipophilic balance known as HLD (hydrophilic-lipophilic deviation). Recognition of this equivalence, with its underlying hypothesis of incompressible fluid with lowest surface energy, reinforces the ...
