Colloid and floor Chemistry is a topic of substantial significance and implications either to our lifestyle and diverse business sectors, starting from coatings and fabrics to medication and biotechnology. How do detergents rather fresh? (Why can’t we simply use water ? ) Why is milk “milky” Why can we use eggs so usually for making sauces ?

In a ‘mixture’ (/Ltiyju,a, migma, or /xety/xa, meigma, really what we call a ‘compound’), the individual things cannot be distinguished, but they are there and influence the whole. Aristotle* says Anaxagoras taught that ‘every particle is a m ixture (niyfjui) in the same w ay as the whole (d/xoio)? rw iravriy. Everything has in it seeds o f everything else, ‘all is in all’ , a panspermia (navanepnia), yet one material usually predominates. T h e prim ary matter is an amalgam (/uyfia, (xelyfia) o f all kinds o f seeds.

A Pythagorean, 2 and Aristotle knew vortex motion in a plenum. Rarefaction and condensation, producing rare and dense bodies, involve motion, and hence, Melissos said, qualitative changes are impossible. ‘If things are many (as Anaxagoras said) they must be such as the One is’,®which is not (as Zeller and Burnet thought) an anticipation of the atomists, since Melissos did not accept empty space. Aristotle^ said Parmenides and Melissos were not physicists any more than Plato, but Anaxagoras, Anaximenes, and Empedokles were, but the real turning point came w ith the atomic theory of Leukippos and Demokritos (seep.
