Answer to Question #15432 in Physical Chemistry for Sarah

Question #15432
Does aluminium interact with palmitate in solution?
For context I am conducting an experiment on isolated mitochondria. Measuring the effects of aluminium and palmitate on respiration. I am seeing something but I am not sure if the two molecules are simply binding together and precipitating out into solution or if they are actually affecting part of the ETC.
