Small-angle X-ray-scattering, light-scattering, and electron microscope experiments were used to determine the phase transitions of colloidal lipid A-diphosphate aqueous dispersions. The phases detected were a correlated liquid phase, a face-centered cubic (Fd3m) and a body-centered cubic (Im3m) colloidal crystal phase and a new glass phase. These experimentally determined phases were shown to be in accord with theoretically predicted equilibrium phases.
