Colloidal dispersions consist of small particles, with linear dimensions generally around 0.1 μm to 10 μm, dispersed in a liquid such as water or an organic solvent. The particles interact with one another as well as with the fluid. The interactions include hydrodynamic and non-hydrodynamic forces; the particles may also undergo Brownian motion.
