e·mul·sion

 (ĭ-mŭl′shən)
n.
1. A suspension of small globules of one liquid in a second liquid with which the first will not mix: an emulsion of oil in vinegar.
2. A photosensitive coating, usually of silver halide grains in a thin gelatin layer, on photographic film, paper, or glass.

[New Latin ēmulsiō, ēmulsiōn-, from Latin ēmulsus, past participle of ēmulgēre, to milk out : ē-, ex-, ex- + mulgēre, to milk; see melg- in Indo-European roots.]

emulsion

(ɪˈmʌlʃən)
n
1. (Photography) photog a light-sensitive coating on a base, such as paper or film, consisting of fine grains of silver bromide suspended in gelatine
2. (Chemistry) chem a colloid in which both phases are liquids: an oil-in-water emulsion.
3. (Chemistry) Also called: emulsion paint a type of paint in which the pigment is suspended in a vehicle, usually a synthetic resin, that is dispersed in water as an emulsion. It usually gives a mat finish
4. (Pharmacology) pharmacol a mixture in which an oily medicine is dispersed in another liquid
5. any liquid resembling milk

1. any colloidal suspension of a liquid in another liquid.
2. any liquid mixture containing medicine suspended in minute globules.
3. a photosensitive layer of silver halide suspended in gelatin, thinly applied to one surface of a photographic film.

e·mul·sion

(ĭ-mŭl′shən)
A suspension of tiny droplets of one liquid in a second liquid. By making an emulsion, one can mix two liquids that ordinarily do not mix well, such as oil and water. Compare aerosol, foam.

emulsion

A colloidal dispersion in which small droplets of one liquid are dispersed within another, such as oil in water or water in oil.
