A colloid is a heterogeneous mixture and its components can be separated by the technique known as centrifugation.
Colloids are mixtures in which microscopically dispersed insoluble particles of one substance are suspended in another substance. The size of the suspended particles in a colloid can range from 1 to 1000 nanometres. Colloids are heterogeneous in nature. Colloids be separated through centrifugation technique.
Centrifugation is a technique used to separate the mixtures or particles from a solution by applying centrifugal force. The principle of the centrifugation process is to force the denser particles to the bottom and the lighter particles stay at the top when spun rapidly.
