    Abstract:
    Equilibrium and dynamic interfacial tension measurements were performed using micropipet technique. Dynamics of phospholipid monolayer formation and equilibrium tensions at the water-air interface were studied. Results showed that the surface tension and the rate of formation of lipid monolayers depended strongly on their relative phase transition temperature.
