Destabilization Of Colloidal Suspensions

For definition purposes, a stable colloidal suspension exists when particles subjected to flocculation, i.e., bringing particles together, do not adhere to one another to form agglomerates of primary colloidal particles. The most important property causing colloidal stability is the existence of net repulsive forces when electrical double layers interact. Conversely, a destabilized colloidal suspension exists when particles subjected to flocculation adhere to one another, forming agglomerates of primary colloidal particles.
