We describe a new class of charge inverted zwitterionic sulfated lipids (AS) with a cationic quaternary amine anchored at the membrane interface and an anionic sulfate moiety extended into the aqueous phase. These lipids have exceptionally high transition temperatures and assemble into lipid aggregates when dispersed in aqueous solutions.
