Lipid bilayers

A component of biological membranes made up of phospholipids. Lipids are amphiphilic in that they have a carboxylic acid head group (polar) and an unsaturated hydrocarbon tail (nonpolar). Lipid bilayers are arranged such that the nonpolar hydrocarbon tails interact with one another through van der Waals interactions, and the polar head groups interact with the aqueous solvent.
