The study of colloids is important in the design of materials for uses ranging from pot making to petroleum refining. This review presents the reasons for instability and different methods for attaining stability in various systems of interest. In this context, both steric and electrostatic stabilization are discussed. Also discussed are surface modification in core-shell technology and the importance of surfactants in emulsions.
