The interaction between [1,1'-binaphthalene]-2,2'-diols (BINOL) and a solid supported bilayer lipid membrane (s-BLM) was studied by cyclic voltammetry and alternating current (AC) impedance measurements. Results indicate that BINOL interacts with s-BLMthrough hydrogen bonding and hydrophobic interaction. The oxidation peak current of the BINOL/s-BLMsystem increases initially and then decreases with an increase in time. This suggests that BINOL gradually destroys the integrity of s-BLM and induces the formation of microchannels within the membrane. The infiltration time of BINOL through the s-BLM decreases as the BINOL concentration increases. With an increase in lecithin and cholesterol content, the membrane resistance of s-BLM increases and the infiltration rate of BINOL through the membrane decreases, which results in a reduction of the infiltration capacity of BINOL towards s-BLM.
