Proton NMR was employed as a probe for the collective hydrocarbon chain dynamics in decylammonium chloride [formula presented] a model biomembrane undergoing an irreversible structural phase transition sequence. Our rotating frame spin-lattice relaxation measurements revealed a low-frequency critical collective chain dynamics in the kHz regime, which is associated with the interdigitated to noninterdigitated chain configurational phase transition.
