Lipids and Biomembranes

ID #1068

In my notes I have hydrophobic interactions are increased by decreasing the temperature. I would think that increasing the temperature would increase the Brownian motion and thus produce more interactions. Was it just a mistake in my note taking, or am I forgetting about something?


Hydrophobic interactions, since they are not bonding, are going to be the strongest when things aren't moving very much and when they have a lot of area over which to accumulate.
