From the preceding section it has become clear that colloid chemistry is not a separate science, but that it should be seen as a part of physical chemistry. Perhaps it would be better to say two parts, as the hydrophobic sols and the colloid systems which represent equilibrium states (macromolecular and association colloids) are only very loosely bound together. The dimension of the kinetic units is the only important “theoretical” link. In practice, however, this weak link means some methodical agreement, which justifies the separation of colloid chemistry from physical chemistry to some extent.
