For instance, the temperature dependence of the lattice spacings for all fully hydrated phases and their aqueous dispersions in both dispersed and non-dispersed MO / water and MLO / water systems can be ascribed solely to variations in the CPP value, i.e. a reduction in the value of a0 (the headgroup area) due to dehydration and a simultaneous enhancement of the value of vs (the hydrophobic chain volume) explains well the changes of The temperature-dependent evolution of the derived lattice parameters of the ME / water systems is illustrated in
