Poly([R]-3-hydroxy-10-undecenoate) (PHUE) is a biodegradable/biocompatible polyester from polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHAs) family, used in biomedical applications. PHA's introduction to the body may have implications on cell membrane stabilitythis motivates studies of interactions between PHAs and phospholipids, main membrane constituents. Interaction analysis in PHUE monolayers with two phospholipids (different hydrophilic groups), phosphatidylserine (DOPS), and phosphatidylethanolamine (DOPE), shows that repulsive interactions between PHUE and DOPS and attractive between PHUE and DOPE resulted from different lipid headgroup size and orientation at the airwater interface (PE, parallel to the interface, attracted PHUE via hydrogen bonds, iondipole, and dipoledipole interactions).
