Biomimetic System Characterization: pH-Induced Chromatic Transition and Nanostructural Transformation of Polydiacetyle and Dimyristoylphosphatidylcholine Vesicles Under pH Variation Using Dynamic Light Scattering (DLS) Technique

Cristiane Patrícia de Oliveira, Nilda de Fátima Ferreira Soares, Alvaro Vianna Novaes de Carvalho Teixeira, Taíla Veloso de Oliveira and Antônio Manoel Maradini Filho
Blue polydiacetylene (PDA) vesicles were prepared and their response to pH changes was investigated using UV-Vis absorption. The effect of the H+ and OH- presence on the size of vesicles was also studied using the dynamic light scattering (DLS) technique
