The results of the simulation are shown in Figure 3, where experimental absorbance of a sample obtained with R = 2.74 is shown together with the calculated spectra of the aforementioned typologies of nanoparticles composing the colloidal suspension. The calculation highlights that nanoparticles with different shapes contribute to the overall absorbance with narrow bands peaked at different wavelengths, thus showing that the broadening of the spectrum is largely attributable to their envelope as a result of the high polydispersivity of the colloid.

The SPR spectra of these colloidal suspensions were observed to be between 470 nm and 495 nm indicating large particle size and aggregates.
All solutions and colloidal suspensions were freshly prepared using deionized (DI) water (Direct Q., Millipore), which was collected the day before the experiment and refrigerated at about 5[degrees]C.
In a different application, researchers are studying using the system to determine the charge and size distribution of particles in a colloidal suspension for use in the chemical industry.
In order to prepare stable dispersions of GO and to remove above mentioned defects, for practical application, several studies are reported and various techniques have been developed which are, dispersion of graphene in solvents [14, 15], using surfactants [16, 17], Colloidal suspension in organic solvents [18], Chemical conversion of graphite [19] and others.
After reaction, the 2 wt% Ti[O.sub.2] colloidal suspension was cooled down in air to room temperature and stored for further use.
0.5 g Mg Al-N[O.sub.3]-LDHs was added to 200 mL of formamide, and then the mixture was allowed to stand for 24 h without stirring or shaking, and then a translucent colloidal suspension was obtained.
6) The fate of iodine in all above experiments is the same whether iodine is applied to the skin in the form of an alcoholic solution or in colloidal suspension. (For the reader's information, the alcoholic solution is tincture of iodine and the colloidal suspension is a saturated aqueous solution of diatomic iodine, [I.sub.2]).
Specializing in the fields of oil and greases, colloidal suspension and coagulation, Puddington discovered the tilted settling process that is now used worldwide in mineral extraction procedures.
