Introduction: Emulsion

Description of Emulsion

Emulsion: stable mixture of two or more immiscible liquids where one liquid, in form of fine droplets or globules, is dispersed in the other.
Source: CRISP

Emulsion: Colloids formed by the combination of two immiscible liquids such as oil and water. Lipid-in-water emulsions are usually liquid, like milk or lotion. Water-in-lipid emulsions tend to be creams. The formation of emulsions may be aided by amphiphatic molecules that surround one component of the system to form MICELLES.
