1. Which of these will increase stabilization of a colloid particle?
- Changing the Ph to its isoelectric point for amphoteric colloid particles like proteins
- Add a little salt (eg. increases solubility of globulins)
- Adding water soluble organic solvent (destroys the lyosphere)
- Adding the ionic strength by adding

2. what is a protective colloid?
- A protective colloid are substances that form a hydrophilic colloid solution stabilizing the hydrophobic colloid particles.
- proteins in the blood are protective colloids of Calcium phosphate and calcium carbonate leading to its precipitation (forming gall stones)
- A protective colloid are substances that form a hydrophobic colloid solution stabilizing the hydrophillic colloid particles.
- A stubstance that specifically stabilises emulsions eg glycocholic (facilate absorption of dietary lipids)
3. What is dialysis?
- the electrophoretic mobility of the particles depends on the size , ccharge and shape.
- diffusion of small molecules and ions from the colloid across the dialysation membrane eg cellophane which is permeable to small molecules and not colloid perticlaes
- The removal of waste products from the blood (purpose of an artificial kidney)
4. which of these is not a way to classify Colloids?
- Organic colloids - colloid particles (eg DNA, viruses, vesicles) or colloid systems(- blood plasma, lymph, cytosol)
- Mobility of coloids eg solutions (free in their motion as in a true solution) and gel (particles arranged in a solid net e.g fibrin gel, gelatine
- Interaction with water - hydrophobic and hydrophillic
- Structure of colloid - Molecular (sungle large molecule eg. proteins/starch) or micellar (particles composed from smaller amphillic ones eg. soap/phospholipids
5. which is not true?
- surfactants are compounds that increase surface tension (adhesive and cohesive forces)
- when the monomer conc > CMC then a micelle is formed
- there are 4 types of surfactants - anion, cationic, amphoteric, non ionic
- Thin layer chromatography - separates substances with different affinity to 2 phases (staionary and mobile phase)
