Colloids, or colloidal dispersions, are substances composed of submicron particles (i.e., particles with dimensions between 1 nm and 1,000 nm), including nanoparticles (i.e., particles below 100 nm), dispersed in a continuous medium.

The medium and the dispersed phase can be either gas, liquid or solid. Depending on the physical state of the two phases, colloidal dispersions are classified as follows -

  •  Foams, consisting of a gas dispersed in a liquid or a solid.
  •  Aerosols, formed by a liquid dispersed in a gas.
  •  Emulsions, made from a liquid dispersed in another liquid.
  •  Gels, formed by a liquid dispersed in a solid.
  •  Solid aerosols, consisting of a solid dispersed in a gas.
  •  Suspensions or sols, made from a solid dispersed in a liquid.
  •  Solid sols or solid suspensions, consisting of a solid dispersed in another solid.

Colloidal dispersions are biphasic systems and must not be confused with solutions, which, instead, are monophasic.
