We have studied the partitioning of a set of phenolic compounds used as lignin precursor models into lipid bilayer disks and liposomes. The bilayer disks are open bilayer structures stabilized by polyethylene glycol-conjugated lipids. Our results indicate that disks generate more accurate partition data than do liposomes. Furthermore, we show that the partitioning into the membrane phase is reduced slightly if disks composed of 1,2-distearoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine and cholesterol are exchanged for disks with a lipid composition mimicking that of the root tissue of Zea mays L.
