Three types of polymerizable glycerophosphocholines have been prepared. They have a styrene group through a spacer having a ketone, ether or amide group. The ketone-and ether-type compounds form nonpolymerized and polymerized vesicles depending on the chain length of the alkyl group at the 2-position of glycerol. The polymerized vesicles are stable for months.
