We thank Prof. Helmuth Möhwald for his support. Anke Diederich, Heinrich Haas and Christel Müller were all helpful when experimental problems occurred. We thank Prof. Hyuk Yu for enlightening remarks. In the framework of the SFB 262, discussions with Dr. Jörg Baschnagel and Dr. Eckhard Bartsch were very stimulating. We thank Dr. Michael Völker, Bayer AG, for the generous gift of the copolymer. We appreciate the financial support of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG He 1616-5/1).

Model membranes, based on thin organic films containing an even, random distribution of functionalized amphiphilic lipid molecules, are reported. The monolayers are stabilized by polymerization and can be transferred to solid substrates using he Langmuir–lodgett technique, allowing structures such as that shown in the Figure to be produced.
