Mastering the magnetic susceptibility of magnetically responsive bicelles with 3β-amino-5-cholestene and complexed lanthanide ions

Author affiliations

Abstract

The magnetic susceptibility of lanthanide-chelating bicelles was selectively enhanced by introducing 3β-amino-5-cholestene (aminocholesterol, Chol-NH2) in the bilayer. Unprecedented magnetic alignment of the bicelles was achieved without altering their size. An aminocholesterol conjugate (Chol-C2OC2-NH2), in combination with different lanthanide ions, offers the possibility of fine-tuning the bicelle's magnetic susceptibility.
