Comparison of the Properties of Solutions, Colloids, And Suspensions Property Solution Colloid SuspensionParticle Size Less than 1 nm 1 to 100 nm More than 100 nmAppearance Clear Cloudy CloudyHomogeneity Homogeneous Homogeneous or Heterogeneous HeterogeneousTransparency Transparent but Often translucent Often opaque but often colored and opaque but can be translucent can be transparentSeparation Does not separate Does not separate Separates or settlesFilterability Passes through Passes through Particles do not filter paper filter paper pass through filter paper
  5. 5. Unique Properties of Colloids  Tyndall Effect  A beam of light passing through a transparent pure colorless solid, liquid or gas cannot be seen except at the point where it enters and leaves the object.  scattering of light
  6. 6.  Brownian Movement  If a colloid is viewed under a special microscope, the dispersed particles will be seen moving in a rapid, random, zigzag motion through the dispersion medium.  This motion in a colloid is one of the reasons why particles remain suspended indefinitely.
  7. 7.  Electric Charge  A dispersed colloidal particle can adsorb electrically charged particles on its surface.  opposite attracts; same repel  prevents coagulation and OMG! precipitation of dispersed colloidalYou’re my particles exactopposite! I think I am attracted to you!
  8. 8. activated carbon Adsoptive Property  Adsoption is the process of collecting a thin layer of molecules or ions of a substance with which it is in contact.  Surfaces of solids and liquids can adsorb molecules from fluid phases (liquids and gases) onto their surface. • Chemisorption – fairly strong, resembling chemical bonds, and difficult to break ex: activated charcoal • Physisorption – weak, involves only Van der Waals forces and the adsorbed material can usually removed again. ex: silica gel silica gel

  10. 10. Classification of Colloids components : dispersed particles (solute) and dispersing medium (solvent) can be classified according to:  Phase  Affinity Between Phases Fabulous!
  11. 11. Types of ColloidsDispersed Dispersion Name ExamplesParticles MediumGas Liquid Foam Beaten egg white, shaving cream, whipped cream, ice cream sodaGas Solid Solid foam Marshmallow, rubber foamLiquid Gas Liquid aerosols Clouds, fog, mist, hair spray, deodorant sprayLiquid Liquid Emulsion Milk, mayonnaise, bloodLiquid Solid Gel Cheese, butter, margarine
  12. 12. Dispersed Dispersion Name ExamplesParticles MediumSolid Gas Soild aerosol Smoke, dust in airSolid Liquid Sol Paint, starch mixture, hot chocolate, gelatinSolid Solid Solid sol Colored glass, gem glass like ruby and garnet
  13. 13. Classification According ToPhase AEROSOLS  suspension of liquid or solid particles in gas
  14. 14. solid foam  FOAMS  colloidalliquid foam dispersions of gas bubbles in liquids (liquid foams) or solid (solid foams)
  15. 15.  EMULSIONS  colloidal dispersion of liquid either a liquid or a solid.  The 2 components of an emulsion are usually immiscible and require an addition of emulsifying agent or peptizing agent to form stable emulsion.  If the dispersed particles in an emulsion are relatively large, they still tend to separate from the dispersion medium. This could be prevented by the a process called homogenization.
  16. 16.  SOLS  a solid dispersed in either a solid or a liquid
  17. 17.  GELS  a colloidal system in which the dispersed phase consists of fibrous, interwoven particles called fibrils which exert a marked effect on the physical properties of the dispersing medium
  18. 18. Classification According toAffinity Between Phases Lyophilic  solvent – loving; have a strong attraction for the molecules of the dispersing medium. Lyophobic  solvent –fearing; dispersed phase are actually immiscible with the solvent under normal conditions.
