Unexpected stability of aqueous dispersions of raspberry-like colloids
September 8-13, 2019
Colloids are microscopically small substances that spread out uniformly through another material and don’t settle to the bottom. When the material is a fluid, the result is a colloidal solution, dispersion or suspension. Natural and artificial colloidal solutions are common in everyday life and include fog, hair sprays, paints, milk, hand lotion and jellies. These solutions are particularly important in the medical field, where they are often used in intravenous solutions to regulate blood conditions and other functions. However, the applicability of colloidal solutions is limited by their stability under certain conditions.
