One of the advantages of investigating lipid phase transitions by thermoanalytical techniques such as DSC is manifested in the proportionality of the signal strength on a DSC curve, attributed to a particular thermotropic event, and its cooperativity degree. Accordingly, the pretransition of 1,2-dipalmitoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (DPPC) is less noticeable than its main phase transition; as a matter of fact, when DSC measurements are performed at low heating rate, such low-cooperativity phase transition could go (almost) unnoticed. The aim of this work is to present temperature-dependent UV/Vis spectroscopy, based on a temperature-dependent change in DPPC suspension turbidity, as a technique applicable for determination of lipid phase transition temperatures. Multivariate analyzes of the acquired UV/Vis spectra show that phase transitions of the low-cooperativity degree, such as pretransitions, can be identified with the same certainty as transitions of a high-cooperativity degree.
