Expert Answer:

There are three dispersion methods:
1. Mechanical dispersion - Suspension dimension are grinded in colloidal mill or ultrasonic disintegrator to colloidal dimensions.
2. Electrical disintegration- Metal sols are prep by making electrode of the metal and immersed in dispersion medium and a electric arc is struck(involves dispersion plus condensation).
3. Peptization- Precipitate is converted into colloids sol by shaking in dispersion medium with an electrolyte called peptizing agent. e.g. Fe(OH)3 ppt + FeCl3. Fe+++ is absorbed on Fe(OH)3 and breaks into colloids.
