Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


The effectiveness of the porous inorganic supported lipid membranes was analyzed. Membranes analyzed consists of a mesoporous Y-alumina core, followed by a microporous silica layer. The surface of the membranes was modified by the addition of C18. it was observed that the spherical particles of scaffold having alumina center with around 50 % porosity are able to hold a large amount of material. The addition of the C18 layer created a large barrier for barrier for proton transfer. The resistance to ion exchange of the sample with the C18/lipid bilayer observed in the pH change tests shows the inorganic materials of provide a support for a lipid membrane.
