Special Systems

Model colloidal systems exist when one variable, usually conspicuous, is made constant. These can be particles of uniform size, or particles with a uniform surface, or colloidal crystals. Other special systems are aerosols such as clouds or smokes, lubricating greases, inks for xerography, electrophoretic displays, and nanoparticles.
