X-ray microscopy and scattering experiments give different experimental results when determining the fractal dimension of colloidal clusters. A two dimensional simulation model is presented to describe reorganization of clusters during the aggregation process. Considering this reorganization gives a rapidly increasing fractal dimension from d=1.53 to d=1.61. This result implies that the fractal dimension of the clusters is mainly affected by reorganization of small sub clusters.

    After incubation with colloidal gold, x-ray dense particles accumulated within (or on the surface of) the cells of the trypanosome Crithidia fasciculata. These particles appeared to accumulate at the posterior of the cell and it is only when cells were imaged rapidly and after maintenance at...

    A prominent feature of soil colloids is their huge specific surface. It determines colloidal properties such as adsorption capacity or diffusion. The colloidal interactions differ significantly from the behavior of the same materials in a bulk system. Interactions in the colloidal regime are...
