Abstract: Four glycoglycerolipids with different head groups have been synthesized and their physicochemical properties studied. The lengths of the head groups from a mono-saccharide to a trisaccharide, in addition to the anomeric stereochemistry for the smaller glycoglycerolipids, have been modified. The synthesis has been optimized to avoid glycerol epimerization and to allow up-scaling. The physicochemical properties of the glycoglycerolipids were studied and a strong de-mixing of the gel-phase, depending on the head-group, was observed.
Keywords: glycolipid synthesis; calorimetrics; biomimetic membranes; physiological conditions
