The difference between the electric charges of hydrophobic colloids and macromolecular colloids is that the former derive their charge from ions adsorbed to the particles, in the latter it is due to the dissociation of groups firmly attached to the macromolecule. Thus the macromolecular and association colloids with electrolyte character can be divided into:
  1. a)

    Colloids with acid character, which carry only anionic groups such as -COO-, -OSO3- and -OPO3H-.

  2. b)

    Colloids with basic character, which carry only cationic groups, such as -NH3+, -NHC(NH2)2+ and -N+(CH3)3.

  3. c)

    Colloids with amphoteric character, which carry both types of groups.
