In this study, for these two points, the "method of a two-dimensional molecular film, regardless of the amphiphilicity of corresponding polymers" and the "evaluation of thermal behavior only in the main part of the structure" have been proposed [40].
Lipotec's Lipomoist 2036 molecular film combats these symptoms of aging as it helps to improve hydration and firmness of the skin.
IBM usually uses the tool as part of its research into new data storage methods, but in this case is hoping their molecular film will encourage kids to take an interest in science.
Applying a potential of about 1 volt across the molecular film, the researchers observed much more current flow in one direction than in the other.
Included are enhanced delivery systems--encapsulations, molecular film delivery systems, aqueous polymer dispersions; liposomes; a wide range of humectant specialties, epidermal lipids, peptides, proteins and glycol-proteins; skin brighteners, self tanning adjuvants and sun care materials; biotechnologically-derived materials; enzymes and enzyme inhibiters; and a diversity of botanically-derived materials and complexes, many organically certified.

Retinol Molecular Film Fluid is also a relatively new entry in this arena.
Retinol Molecular Film Fluid3 has a unique delivery system for retinol in a molecular film, a very thin monolayer functional film that spreads very well on the epidermis favoring cutaneous absorption of the retinol molecule.
The resistance of molecular films to compression (e.g., elasticity) is commonly characterized by the compressibility modulus (K), given as K = -A[(d[pi]/dA).sub.T], where A is the area per molecules, [pi] is surface pressure in the films, and T is temperature.
