What do you understand by the term Emulsion?


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.
