    Abstract: Biomolecules of lipids and proteins optimize the hydrophobicity to precisely form their three-dimensional structures. The branching of hydrocarbon chains is appropriate for fine-tuning the hydrophobicity of the molecules because it provides a slight reduction in hydrophobicity. This paper describes the morphological changes of vesicles formed by an... Show More

    Abstract: For multilayer film structures, mechanical failure is usually taken place at the interface. To deeply understand the typical issue, it is first essential to know the stress status at the interlayer surface. For this aim, in this work, the author presented displacement-energy models (DEM) for accurately calculating the interfacial stress in multilay... Show More
