In the case of the fatty acid, the electron diffraction pattern of the high- and the low-pressure solid phases are clearly different (cf. Fig. 1). The latter is most probably a tilted (smectic C) phase as follows from the C2-symmetry of the pattern (cf. Fig. 1and reference [2 b]) . 30 III. DISLOCATIONS AND MONOLAYER PHASES DISCLINATIONS OF CRYSTALLINE Depending on the size of the head-groups, the chains may be oriented normal (such as for DMPE and monovalent DMPA) or may be tilted (such as for phosphatidylcholines [2 a] ) with respect to the monolayer normal.
