Scanning dilatometric and calorimetric measurements were performed in order to obtain information on correlations between various phenomena involving a lipid vesicle. Scanning dilatometry has been shown to be a fast and reliable tool which gives complementary information to that obtained using differential scanning calorimetry and also, provides a means with which to follow dynamic processes without the introduction of perturbing probes into the lipid matrix. The systems examined were vesicles built up from mixtures of neutral and charged lipids in the presence of mono- and divalent inorganic cations. The studied processes were the gel-liquid crystal transition, lateral phase separation in mixed lipid vesicles and fusion between vesicles. © 1988 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
