Incorporation of Hydrophobic Materials in Ordered Molecular Structures for Use as Inks or Paints

Hydrophobic dyes or pigments may be encapsulated or incorporated in phospholipid vehicles in an aqueous medium for forming inks, dyes or paints.

Phospholids, which can form highly ordered structures, have a polar or charged head group and nonpolar hydrocarbon tails. In an aqueous medium, one structure formed is a bilayer spherical vehicle. The figure shows a typical vehicle containing the hydrophobic material.

A series of different hydrophobic materials may be individually incorporated or encapsulated in phospholipid vehicles and then transferred to a common aqueous medium. This technique allows the various materials to act independently of one another.
