The shape and the location of the minima of all scattering curves could be well fitted by only varying the mass density of dispersion medium.
By manipulating the electron density of the dispersion medium, the microstructural parameters of the latex dispersion were evaluated based on quantitative discussion of the scattering intensity distribution profiles.
Colloids may be divided into two major classes: the type that readily goes into solution is called a lyophilic (solvent-loving) colloid (hydrophilic if the dispersion medium is water), and the type prepared from sparingly soluble substances is called a lyophobic (solvent-hating, hydrophobic in the case of water) colloid.
Under these conditions, some of the solvent molecules are excluded to the bulk dispersion medium.
A dispersion medium comprised of methoxyethanol and ethanol was selected for the polymerizations in which azobisizobutyronitrile and polyacrylic acid were used as the initiator and the steric stabilizer, respectively.
