Raman spectra of aqueous phospholipid bilayers and aqueous micellar solution of surfactants at high pressure have been studied in this laboratory. However, some normal modes in these systems are Raman inactive or weakly active, and most of the normal modes of the methylene chains in these systems are highly dispersed. In order to further understand the pressure effects on the vibrational dynamics in these systems, we have extended our pressure studies to the Fourier transform infrared spectra of these aqueous systems, using a diamond anvil cell.
