"In making some experiments with various colloids it was noticed that phenol and water seemingly formed a colloid, so it was deemed advisable to experiment farther and see if this fact could be established. The references on this subject vary widely and for this reason some of them are given here. Ostwald recognised [sic] the colloid state of a phenol-water mixture at the critical temperature but evidently failed to see the possibility of the phenol-water colloid at all temperatures. In the following article I will try to show that the phenol-water mixture forms a colloid, not only at the critical temperature, but at all temperatures and in all concentrations"--Introduction, page 3.
