    What is the mass of a POPC lipid?? I cannot find it through online searches

    Hi. It seems like a simple question to me. I just want to know the mass of a POPC lipid molecule either in amu or any other mass unit.

    From searching online I only get results of journal articles that did something or other with POPC lipids for experiments but I either don't have access to these papers or it seems that they do not directly state this anywhere anyway.

    Thanks.
