The chemistry and physics of colloids.
The Colloids are types of mechanical mixtures where a substance is dispersed throughout a dispersion medium. The terms colloid or colloidally therefore designate not a material property, but a state.
Colloids and colloidal systems are therefore classified as soft matter. The size of the particles lies in the micro- and nanoscale. Typical examples of colloidal systems are milk, blood, mist but also cosmetic emulsions, smoke, whipped cream, aerogels, etc.
Colloid chemistry is a branch of physical chemistry and is concerned with the chemical properties and the production of colloidal systems.
Below you will find online available information resources on the chemistry and physics of colloids.
A New Study shows Correlation between Microscopic Structures and Macroscopic Properties - and offers a Recipe Book for Colloids.

This beautiful compilation of invited review articles - authored by well-known scientists - covers the latest developments and achievements in colloid and interface science, and is dedicated to Professor Tharwat Tadros, an outstanding scientist in the field. Due to the fact that colloid science involves a great number of disciplines, the papers discuss such hot topics as emulsions, nano-particles, surfactants, micro-emulsions and self-assembly.
