Title: Dynamic light scattering study on vesicles of Netaine-Cholesterol system

The morphology of vesicles system with defined particle size and shape is one of interest in our technical applications. Here we have used dynamic light scattering technique and transmission electron microscopy for structural characterization of N-dimethylglycine Betaine with 5-cholesten-3β-ol vesicles in aqueous solutions. An isotropic one phase region is found in the very diluted regions depending on Betaine/Cholesterol ratio. The isotropic region was stable for more than 3 months at room temperature, with monodispersed unilamellar vesicles ∼ 300nm.
