Thus, with strong adsorption of SAPL molecules and strong cohesion of this adsorbed lining, SAPL satisfies the two fundamental criteria for a high-load-bearing boundary lubricant.
Therefore, a combination of SAPLs rather than a single SAPL contributes to the boundary lubrication of the joints.
The SAPLs form a so-called lipid bilayer, which is composed of two layers of lipids arranged so that their hydrocarbon tails face one another to form an oily core held together by Van der Waals interactions, while their charged heads face the aqueous solutions on both sides of the membrane.
This ruling, while significant and just, is bittersweet because it hasn't stopped horse slaughter yet," says Chris Heyde, deputy legislative director of SAPL.
