Certain amphiphilic lipids and surfactants are able to self-assemble into highlyordered structures in an aqueous environment, with long-range order in one, two or three dimensions (3D) and short-range disorder at atomic distances (Quantan et al.2004 ; Yano et al. 2005 ). Consequently, these structures have properties intermediate between those of solid crystals and isotropic liquids and are referred to as lyotropicliquid crystals or mesophases.
