Matter of very small particle size, in the range of 0.1 and 0.001 microns in diameter. They are larger than molecules, but small enough that they will not settle out of a solution; they cannot be removed by conventional filtration and instead require coagulation (to form larger particles via agglomeration) that can then be removed by conventional means.
