Abstract
Ubiquinone and plastoquinone are two of the main electron and proton shuttle molecules in biological systems, and monogalactosyldiacylglycerol (MGDG) is the most abundant lipid in the thylakoid membrane of chloroplasts. Saturated MGDG, ubiquinone-10 (UQ) and MGDG:UQ mixed monolayers at the air/water interface have been studied using surface pressure–area isotherms and Brewster Angle Microscopy. Moreover, the transferred Langmuir–Blodgett films have been observed by Atomic Force Microscopy. T...
