An emulsion can be defined as a colloid consisting of two or more non-homogenous type of liquids wherein one of the liquid contains the dispersion of the different form of liquids.
Characteristics Of Emulsions
- Emulsions comprise both continuous and dispersed phases, with an interface separating them.
- Emulsions have a cloudy appearance due to many phase interfaces scattering light passing through the emulsions.
- Emulsions appear in white colour when the light is dispersed in equal proportions.
- Higher-frequency and low-wavelength light will be scattered in more fractions if the emulsion is dilute, and this form of emulsion will appear blue. The Tyndall effect is another name for this phenomenon.
