Mixed monolayer of DPPC and a daunomycin-polylysine conjugate, based on a (poly[Lys-(DL-Alam-Glui)] (EAK) core with daunomycin molecules attached through the acid labile cis-aconytil moiety, were studied and thermodynamic parameters associated to this interaction calculated. The same experiments were carried out in parallel with plain polymer and the results obtained indicate that the presence of Daunomycin attached to the lateral chains of polymer backbone modifies the overall surface characteristics of these derivatives.
