Miscible

Science / Chemistry / Miscible: Two liquids are considered 'miscible' or mixable if shaking them together results in a single liquid phase, with no meniscus visible between layers of liquid.

Immiscible

Science / Chemistry / Immiscible: Two liquids are considered 'immiscible' or unmixable if shaking equal volumes of the liquids together results in a meniscus visible between two layers of liquid. If the liquids are completely immiscib MORE

Emulsion

Science / Chemistry / Emulsion: A colloid formed from tiny liquid droplets suspended in another, immiscible liquid. Milk is an example of an emulsion. MORE

Solvent Extraction

Science / Chemistry / Solvent Extraction: Solvent extraction is a method for separating mixtures by exploiting differences in the solubilities of the components. For example, a coffee machine extracts the soluble components of ground coffee w MORE

Partial Miscibility

Science / Chemistry / Partial Miscibility: Two liquids are considered partially miscible if shaking equal volumes of the liquids together results in a meniscus visible between two layers of liquid, but the volumes of the layers are not identic MORE
