"Chemical Equation Presented" Searching for orientation: The alignment of aspherical paramagnetic liposomes in a magnetic field makes them attractive contrast agents for magnetic resonance (MR) imaging. The orientation of aspher-ical liposomes in solution, and the orientation change upon binding to a target surface was determined by using a simple MR technique (see picture).
