Material in the nanometer to micrometer size range whose characteristics and reactions are largely controlled by surface properties. Larger than most inorganic compounds, colloids will remain suspended indefinitely and will not normally diffuse through animal or vegetable membranes. The IUPAC definition of a colloid refers to "molecules or polymolecular particles" having at least one dimension in the range of 1-1000 nm.

The term "colloid" was found in the following pages:
