Abstract [en]

Short-range interactions between surfactant and lipid layers are of great importance in technical applications in complex fluids such as foams, dispersions and emulsions, as well as in the formulation and performance of dispersants, detergents and flocculants. It is also of utmost importance in biological systems where interactions between biomembranes influence a range of processes. The field of short-range interactions has been thoroughly investigated during the past 30 years, following the emergence of a number of techniques to measure interaction forces, Thus, our understanding has increased considerably and it is timely to summarize relevant knowledge accumulated in this area. In this review we focus on the nature of short-range interactions between non-ionic and zwitterionic surfactant and lipid layers exposing their polar groups to the surrounding medium. We discuss the complex interplay of short-range (van der Waals, hydration, steric and other) forces based on recent theoretical and experimental results.
