Systems with particles smaller than 0.1 to 0.2 micron aregenerally considered to be colloidal and exhibit propertiesthat lie between those of true molecular solutions andsuspensions of visible particles do not exhibit all propertiesof colloid
The suspended particles do not exhibit all properties ocolloids, such as colligative properties but do have surfaceproperties which enhances its adsorption power.
Dispersed particles in the coarse dispersion have a greatertendency to separate from the dispersion medium becauseof their greater size than in fine dispersions.
Most solids in dispersion tend to settle to the bottom of container due to greater density than dispersion medium.
Complete and uniform redistribution of the dispersedphase is essential to the accurate administration of uniformdoses.
