Abstract

We report the synthesis and biophysical characterization of a novel class of zwitterionic lipids (ZL) with head groups containing a 3° or 4° amine and carboxylate. ZL form stable liposomes that exhibit head group dependent, pH-responsive biophysical characteristics. These lipids may be suitable components for drug delivery applications due to their ease of synthesis and unique pH-dependent properties.
