Spinach chloroplast membranes and aqueous dispersions of their extracted lipids have been studied by spin label (stearic acid)
electron spin resonance and carbon-13 nuclear magnetic resonance techniques. Combined with electron microscope studies, first
systematic evidence is found for the existence of a dynamic lipid-bilayer structure in the chloroplast membranes.
