Introduction Into Cubic Phase Lipids. Matt Chandler. Polymorphism . In general, it describes multiple possible states for a single property. Also known as mesomorphism. Ex. Carbon can exist as diamond or graphite. . Polymorphism in Lipids.

A - lamellar liquid crystal phase, L.
B - inverted hexagonal phase, HII.
C - hexagonal phase, HI.
Snapshot of a configuration of lipid aggregates in the form of a filament of rod-like micelles formed by H3(T5)2 lipids and simulated by dissipative particle dynamics. The model parameters are adapted from Groot and Rabone (2001). The red beads represent hydrophilic head groups (H) and the green beads represent the tail beads (T). For the sake of clarity, the water beads are not shown.
